Mushtaq Ahmed assures Pakistan "not frustrated" despite second-innings collapse

"We're not frustrated," he said at the video press conference. "It's been awhile since we played Test cricket. But the guys are now getting back into the swing of things. We are very confident. We've got a 244-run lead, and if we get another 20-30 runs, it'll be a very good score on this pitch. If we bowl and field well, I think this will be a very good Test match."

"But there isn't need to worry too much," he added. "The way Yasir and Shadab bowled, they understand the pitch and the pace you have to bowl to each specific batsman and the field positioning you need to have. I think they're very confident in the way they bowl. Yasir began with nerves but you can understand that. Both spinners bowled very well in the middle session, and that gives me hope they can play a crucial role as long as they have a decent target to defend."
