Pakistan ODI captain Misbah-ul-Haq was all smiles after his side's 85-run win over India on Thursday, and lavishly praised his bowlers as they dismissed the hosts for 165 at Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
Pakistan batted first and made 250 all out, though they were on 141 for one at a stage and should have made much more than they did. It was immaterial though, as fast bowlers Junaid Khan and Umar Gul got rid of the top order and spinner Saeed Ajmal cleaned up the tail.
The win gave Pakistan a 2-0 series lead, and thus the overall win, as there is just one more game to play, on Sunday in Delhi. Misbah said he hoped the bowlers would continue to dominate the down-in-the-dumps Indians and secure a whitewash.
Misbah told the media: "The bowlers are really doing a great job, especially Junaid [Khan] who is moving it both ways and asking questions of the batsmen.
"[Mohammad] Irfan has his height, [Umar] Gul also bowled well today, and [Saeed] Ajmal and [Mohammad] Hafeez always deliver for us. We have the edge in the quality of our bowling.
"Indian batsmen are struggling for quite a long time. But I think our bowlers exploited the conditions better. Normally we get flat pitches here in India. But both the pitches - in Chennai and Kolkata - were challenging for batsmen."
The skipper also had a few words for Nasir Jamshed, who scored a third consecutive century to make sure his side's bowlers had something to defend.
He said: "He has a superb temperament and can play long innings. He is an exceptional talent and is a good prospect for Pakistan."
Jamshed himself was pleased with his 106, including two sixes, and hoped to continue in this vein and gather more awards along the way.
He said: "I just enjoy my batting, last time I missed the Man of the Match but luckily this time they gave it to me. I just kept my cool. The pitch was little bit slow, and I just played according to the ball. It was dream to play in the ground."
India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni was gracious in his comments about Jamshed, and admitted it was difficult to curb the batsman's strokeplay.
Dhoni said: "It is important for a batsman when he gets a start to stay for long and allow the team to play around him. That is what he has done. He took calculated risks and batted with good composure. He batted really well."
