A frustrating defeat: Waqar

“It can be very frustrating, the way we dropped the catches and the way we fielded,” said Waqar after the match.

Pakistan fielders put up a poor show as they dropped as many as five catches in the match, with off-spinner Saeed Ajmal putting down three himself. Ajmal dropped an easy catch off England opener Craig Kieswetter when he was yet to get off the mark. Waqar however, felt that all is not lost for the team but they have to the improve performance in the coming matches if they were to defend the title.

“We’re not out of the tournament, so we don’t really have to worry about that,” he said.
Waqar did not have any qualm to admit it was Kevin Pietersen’s unbeaten 70 that made all the difference in Thursday’s match. “You must give Pietersen credit for the way he played — he batted like a champion.”
