After that, he also dismissed Pakistani skipper Babar Azam. Jeremy Gordon sent Fakhar Zaman back in 4 runs. Pakistan reached the target in 18 runs. Canada faced a defeat by 7 wickets. 

Captain’s View:

The defeat was a setback for Canada. After the defeat, Canada captain Saad Bin Zafar reflected on the match. He said, “Was a bit disappointing. The wicket was difficult to bat on.
