Shoaib Malik: I'm very happy with the way we played today. We could have done better with the bowling but the way we batted was fantastic. We came here 4-5 days back and I think we adapted well.
Jimmy Adams: We needed to play better cricket and probably better luck with the toss. We've not been up to it. It's a shame but we'll just try to shake it off and play cricket.
