Hayden, who joined the Pakistan national team back in September, lauded Babar for sending throwdowns to Rizwan before the match at the SCG. Hayden spoke about the same in a dressing room video uploaded on Pakistan cricket’s Twitter handle.

“Sensational performance. I think as coaches and a team, we can only ask about giving our best and clearly tonight that was the case. It was just an extraordinary effort. I want to make a special mention to a moment that I saw at the start of play and that was Babar throwing balls to Rizzy and I thought, from an opening partnership’s point of view, that’s exactly what this team requires,” Hayden said.

“It’s just extraordinary that they decided to do that. There were plenty of coaches around, but Babar showed that it wasn’t just about him, it’s also about his mate at the other end,” he added.

Rizwan went on to bag the Player of the Match award after he scored 57 runs with the help of five fours. Babar also regained form by scoring a fifty, helping Pakistan get past the finish line with five balls to spare.
