We had opportunities to win, but we were unable to convert them into goals. We came here with a youthful team that drew with India. He said, “Now, the great victory versus Indonesia is a morale lift for them.”
Pakistan is aiming for a podium position at the Asia Cup to qualify for the World Cup in India, according to Bhutta. “Because Indonesia is a lower-ranked team, we did our hardest to score as many goals against them as we could to improve our standing,” the captain said.
