Speaking at the pre-match press conference, Bradburn was asked if their loss against India demoralized them, to which he said no, adding that it was a huge experience for the team to play in front of such a big crowd.

“The answer is definitely no. That was a performance in Ahmedabad which was a huge experience for all of our players having never played at that venue before and the unusual experience of playing in front of a 1,30,000 supporters of the opposition was a was a huge experience and ultimately a good experience for our boys,” said Bradburn.

He went on to say that the tournament is being played in conditions that are foreign to them since none of their players have played in India before.

“It’s taking a little bit longer than we were hoping, but we want to play a dynamic brand that matches the challenge of the conditions we’re playing in. So, this tournament is foreign condition for us. None of our players have played here before. Every venue is a new one, including this one,” Bradburn added.

Speaking about their upcoming match against Bangladesh, Bradburn said they don’t have a divine right to beat any team and will be focused on their own performances. Pakistan are coming off a four-match losing streak and will be looking to turn their form around against Bangladesh.

“There are ten quality teams here at this tournament, we don’t have a divine right to beat any of them. We respect Bangladesh hugely. They’re a quality group of cricketers. We’re focused very much on looking in the mirror as well and making sure that we’re putting our very best performance together that we can,” said Bradburn.

Pakistan has amassed four points in their opening six matches in the tournament, while occupying the sixth spot with a net run-rate of -0.387.
