Ultimately, Warrican won. At the same time, a fine leg fielder was positioned, and he could have easily reached out. Rizwan, however, took the catch with a full-throttle drive.
Pakistani teammates were stunned by the catch. Having a good shot at winning the game also made the dressing room happy. Kemar Roach and Jayden Seales, however, helped the team reach its goal of 168 points.
Babar Azam, Pakistan’s all-formats captain, said: “This is the beauty of Test cricket.” We did well with batting, but we didn’t carry on with the momentum in the first innings. We lost momentum in the second innings after the bowlers did well.
It was difficult to score, it was swinging and seaming, the outfield was slow, and their bowlers bowled in the channel, “Pakistan captain Babar Azam was quoted as saying after the match. “We were patient and wanted to build a partnership. Hasan, Shaheen, and Abbas were good throughout, and we took our catches, but we did drop two in the final session which might have made the difference,” he added.
