Ashraf Zaka

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief Zaka Ashraf has said it is an honour for the country to have defeated India in their own land. Ashraf lauded the Pakistan team for their performance in India, and said they deserve appreciation for the way they fought in India, reports the Daily Times. Ashraf made the comments as the Pakistan team returned home after winning the ODI series against archrivals India and drawing the Twenty20 series 1-1.

Meanwhile, Misbah ul Haq said he would give credit to the whole team for the win, but mentioned the names of Mohammad Irfan, Junaid Khan and Nasir Jamshed, as having delivered an impressive performance. Nasir, 23, led the batting with consecutive centuries in Chennai and Kolkata and ended up as the leading run-getter in the series with 241 runs. His Man-of-the-Series-winning performance helped him climb 45 places in the ODI rankings to a career-best 31st. Mohammad Hafeez, the T20 captain, too had a magnificent series. He became the number one all-rounder in ODIs following success with both bat and ball in the series.
