Pakistan cricket team returned home after a fifth-place finish in the points table, level on 11 points with New Zealand. But the Kiwis qualified as the fourth team for the semi-finals owing to better net run rate.
"There is no need to say sorry. We worked hard and gave our best. We haven't returned with 2-4 points, but with 11," Sarfaraz Ahmed said during his first press conference on reaching home.
"We accept that we didn't perform well as a team in the 1st 5 matches but it wasn't as bad a performance as people are making it out to be," he added.
