After the match Rehan Butt told AFP his side was relieved to have crossed the first hurdle with ease.”We are really pleased that we could start off with a victory,” the 30-year-old said. “We have some tough matches coming up against Australia and India and the win today will boost our confidence.”
The striker was disappointed with the poor attendance at the stadium Tuesday but hoped more people would turn up for Pakistan’s match against the home team.
“A player always gives his best when there is a good crowd to cheer the good moves. May be the early timings and the heat kept the crowd away. But I am sure there will be many who will come to watch us play India.”
Pakistan play India on Sunday October 10 at 7pm Delhi time (2.30pm UK)
