Pakistan captain Mohammed Hafeez Tuesday said that he was happy to start the shot limited overs series with a win over India in the first of the two Twenty20 Internationals here at the M.Chinnaswamy Stadium.
"It is a great effort, we wanted to do well at the start of the series. Mohammed Irfan was the surprise package for us and everybody. We knew that we had a good attack. We knew that Umar Gul has been always good with the old ball, they restricted India where we wanted them to. Once the spinners came on after the new ball, we knew we had a chance, we took a risk at the right time. It is a gift for the whole nation, it is Quaid day back home," he said.
