To be able to take six wickets at Lord’s is a very big moment for me and my family, it’s the Home of Cricket and a very special place.”We’ve played such good cricket in the last four matches and it’s disappointing it’s now over. This is my first World Cup, and the same for other players too, that is very good news for the future.”Another notable performance in the match came from opener Imam Ul-Haq, who scored a run-a-ball 100 to set the platform for Pakistan’s 315 for nine.However, Imam was left to rue the missed chances as Pakistan exited the tournament despite four successive wins.The 1992 champions missed out on the knockout stage due to their net run-rate which was less than New Zealand, who qualified as the fourth semifinalist.”I think the Australia defeat hurts me a lot. I was set and playing well. I should have won that match for Pakistan,” he said.advertisement”We lost four quick wickets and I think I should have won that game and we would have beaten a big team in the World Cup.”I had starts but couldn’t score big. I am very young so I have learned a lot in this World Cup. What mistakes I have committed; I have learned from them and I am sure that will help me.Read more | World cup 2019: Match vs West Indies cost us the whole tournament, says Sarfaraz Ahmed after Pakistan exitAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
