Pakistan can take pride in getting to the World Cup final, but now their young team must take the next step—learning how to close out tight games, said batsman Shan Masood on Sunday.
“There were stages especially with the bat that we could have finished things off really well,” he said. “Personally, I take blame for it. We were aiming for 170 and having looked at the way the innings ended, we could have used a batsman staying in and getting us to at least 155-160, which would have been good on that pitch.”
