WHAT DID THEY SAY?

“We are very respectful of the Pakistan team. I watched them bat at Optus Stadium last week, and they have some very technically correct batsman. I’m not going to single out one; they are a very good batting side.” – Australia coach Justin Langer

“We have come here with a lot of confidence. We have the talent and potential to do well here. We have done well in patches in the previous series, but we come with a few fresh faces, and we are very confident we have huge potential to beat Australia. To do that we have to keep believing, and play with no fear.” – Pakistan captain Azhar Ali
