Pat Cummins disputes Mohammad Hafeez’s claim that Pakistan played better than Australia



Pat Cummins downplays Mohammad Hafeez’s remarks about Pakistan’s performance in the second Test. Despite losing to Australia, Pakistan’s team director, Mohammad Hafeez, is satisfied with their performance and claims they outperformed the hosts. It’s worth noting that Pakistan had the upper hand when Australia was 16/4 on Day 3 but a missed catch by Abdullah Shafique allowed Mitchell Marsh to score 96 runs and change the momentum. Pakistan remained competitive during the chase of 317 runs, with Captain Shan Masood and Babar Azam providing valuable support. Hafeez expressed belief that some decisions did not go their way. Cummins acknowledged Pakistan’s good performance but emphasized his satisfaction with the victory, stating that it does not concern him what others think about the game. Pakistan will aim to secure at least one victory in the ultimate Test on January 3rd at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
