While talking to the media after the match on Monday, the wicketkeeper-batsman revealed plans for the rest of the series.

“Yes there are plans of making changes in the playing eleven after sealing the series win,” said Sarfraz. “Our target was to win the series and once we will be able to achieve that, our focus will be on testing our bench strength.”

Talking about the team’s performance on the day, the 31-year-old went on to praise the impact of left-arm pacer Usman Khan Shinwari.

“Ever since his comeback from the back injury, Usman has delivered for the team on numerous occasions,” he said. “This is not the first time when he destroyed opposition’s batting unit, as he did the same on a flat track in Sharjah against Sri Lanka, and he is improving day by day.”

Sarfraz also hailed team’s batting performance in a relatively easier chase. “Our openers did a great job in chasing a small total,” said Sarfraz. “Both Imamul Haq and Babar Azam helped Fakhar Zaman immensely, which is a good sign. There is still some work needs to be done in the fielding department, but we are very pleased with the team’s overall performance.”
