After the end of the match, Shaheen Afridi shared a few words in the post-match conference and said, "Have been practising my batting in the nets to ensure that I can contribute to the team with the bat if needed. Will try to improve more if possible.

Talking about the match, Peshawar played really well but we weren't good enough on the field. If we had taken our catches, we could have won the game. Hopefully, we can do well in the playoffs."

After that, the skipper of Peshawar Zalmi, Wahab Riaz also shared a few words in the post-match presentation and claimed, "There was pressure but I backed my skills and thankfully, was able to restrict them to a score we could chase easily. These things happen in T20 cricket, you never know. There was some pressure on the bowler, but that happens."

"Haris has made a lot of difference to our team from the day he has joined. Hopefully, he will keep improving further. When you need just six to win, it's important to send batters who can hit singles, that's why we went with Shoaib and Haris.

Singles are really important in this tournament at this stage with the pitches starting to slow down," he added.
