Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed: “Whenever we are in a corner we play our best; it was a great team effort. All the bowlers bowled well and there was some of the finest batting I have ever seen. Babar played one of the best innings I have ever seen. They handled the pressure so well.
“We are not thinking about 1992, we are going match by match.”
New Zealand captain Kane Williamson: “The surfaces in the last three games have been difficult and we were outplayed on a tough surface by a strong side.
“There was more bounce than we expected, and they put the ball in the right areas. The fight we showed in the back end was outstanding and we were in a competitive position. We were right in it but their batsmen played beautifully well and took the game away from us.
