Pat Cummins’ brilliant rejoinder to Hafeez’s “Pakistan played better cricket” comment was, “Doesn’t really matter, does it?” In the third Test match of their three-match series, Australia defeated Pakistan by 79 runs to win the series 2-0. Australia and Pakistan fought fiercely the entire game, but the hosts won at the MCG because to raw skill from captain Pat Cummins.

Pakistan’s Director of Cricket, Muhammad Hafeez, made a stunning statement following the game, saying that although his team made a lot of blunders, they were still the superior team in Melbourne. The former cricket player for Pakistan stated, “As a team, we played better cricket.” at the press conference following the game. 

That makes me proud. The team’s bravery in going into this game with the greatest possible approach. In my opinion, the Pakistani squad performed better overall than the opposing team.

“We were hitting the appropriate spots when we bowled and had improved our batting intent. Yes, we made a few errors that cost us the game, but collectively I think we had a lot of good things going on, enough to win, but regrettably in the end we lost,” he continued.

Later, at Cummins’ post-game news conference, a reporter brought up Hafeez’s statement and inquired about his response. “That’s cool… [laughs]. Yes, they were quite good. I’m glad we won,” said Cummins.

When the reporter questioned him about it once more, he said, “It doesn’t really matter, does it? In the end, the winning team is the one.”

On Day 4, there were times when it appeared as though Pakistan would make a surprise move. However, in the last session, an inspiring Cummins put a stop to those dreams by becoming the first Test captain to take ten wickets in an MCG Test. Pakistan went from having 216/5 to being all out at 237. 

By the close of Day 4’s second session, Cummins had already signaled Australia’s intentions by stopping Shan Masood’s outstanding run that looked to be taking the game away from the Australians.
