Pleased at the turnaround, the sort of which has helped Pakistan cricket secure incredible status throughout the years, captain Sarfaraz Ahmed says his group flourishes when "pushed to the corner". 

Babar Azam created a great century under strain as Pakistan ended New Zealand's unbeaten keep running in the World Cup with a six-wicket triumph here on Wednesday. 

"Great to see the outcomes today. At whatever point Pakistan group is pushed to the corner, we progress nicely," Sarfaraz said after the success. 

The skipper was forced to bear unforgiving analysis following his group's underlying keep running of annihilations, which arrived at an end with their success over South Africa before the positive outcome against New Zealand.

Sarfaraz expressed gratitude toward the group at Edgbaston. He, be that as it may, felt all the more should be done on the handling side. 

"Handling is significant, yet we didn't handle well until today and we buckled down in our training sessions. 

"It's an incredible collaboration. The way (Mohammad) Amir began and after that Shaheen (Shah Afridi)... Shadab (Khan) in the center overs and the way Babar and Haris (Sohail) batted. 

"To me Babar played a standout amongst the best innings I have seen. It's a precarious pitch, we needed to bat fifty overs. Acknowledge to Haris too for the manner in which he took care of weight." 

Gotten some information about the examinations between their battle and the one out of 1992 version, Sarfaraz stated, "We are not pondering the 1992 World Cup, we are taking game by game here. We are certain as a group and ideally we will progress nicely." 

New Zealand commander Kane Williamson yielded his group was defeated by a superior side on the day. "We have found in the last three diversions that the surfaces have been helping bowling and they have been powerful close recreations," Williamson said. 

"We were defeated on an extreme surface by an extraordinary Pakistan side today. I think there was somewhat more ricochet than we encountered on a similar surface a few days ago. 

"Pakistan put the ball in the correct territories, and made life hard for us. The battle that we gave in the center was magnificent, on account of (Jimmy) Neesham and (Colin) de Grandhomme, to post a focused aggregate," the captain included.
