    Sarfaraz Ahmed  Pakistan skipper: Thanks to almighty. Thanks to all the supporters, they have been cheering us from ball one and I think this is a great win for us. It was not an easy pitch to bat on but, credit should go to Imad for the way he batted till the end. We know it is not easy (the chase) and their bowlers used the conditions very well. We have been batting very well, especially Babar Azam played very well and I think we needed a partnership in the middle overs, but in the end we finished well. Everyone chipped in and I think it is a team effort. We all know that after four games, it won't be easy to win all the next four games, but we are taking it match by match. In the previous game, the way Babar Azam and Harris Sohail handled the pressure was really good and today the way Imad handled the pressure and in the end, Shadab and the way Wahab Riaz batted, I think his 15 runs were very important. We all know he (Shaheen Afridi) is a good bowler and he is improving day by day and I think he is working hard and he bowled really well today. All the other bowlers - Wahab, Amir, Shadab and Imad - also bowled well today and I believe all of them are in good nick. Obviously we all are watching (India v England game) but we are not thinking about it and hopefully the better team wins.

    Gulbadin Naib, Afghanistan captain: Fought really well. Gave 100%. We missed opportunities to win. Credit to Pakistan, they controlled their nerves. Imad played really well. Shadab did well too, rotated strike. In this tournament, you'll face these kinds of situations. Bad luck for us today, Hamid Hassan was injured. If he would've been there, would've been difficult for Pakistan. That was the turning point. Batsman need to take more responsibility. Thank you to the tremendous crowd here.

    Imad Wasim, Man of the Match: When I went, Rashid was bowling brilliantly. Couldn't pick him to be honest. Just hung in there. Decided to play fifty overs. He (Naib) was the only bowler who could've been targeted to be honest. Wicket was turning square. They've got world class spinners. Plan was to attack when fast bowler comes in. Thanks to the crowd. Feels like home here. Win next game, never know what can happen. Now we believe we can win from anywhere.

    What a thriller at Headingly. Afghanistan throw it away in the end. Wahab Riaz and Imad Wasim stitched a 50-run partnership to take Pakistan home. Pakistan are still alive in this World Cup.
