Sean Williams (Zimbabwe all-rounder): I think we can absolutely beat the bigger teams. We’re tired of competing and getting beaten. That’s no longer acceptable. It’s been way too long and the whole mental approach towards our game has completely changed. Some of the young players in the changing room, like Wesley Madhevere, are remarkably good players. This experience allows those younger guys to play and beat the bigger teams.
Babar Azam (Pakistan captain): We need to work on our fielding so we don’t drop so many catches. Those catches give good players second and third chances, and that hurt us in the end (about final ODI).
