Babar Azam speaking after the first T20I against World XI:

"The pitch was good but a little slow so the plan was to adjust to the wicket and build partnerships."

"There was quite a lot of excitement for us to be playing at home after such a long time, I'd like to thank the World XI players and ICC for coming here."

"We did well in the Champions Trophy and we want to continue playing in a similar manner. We want to go out there and give our 100% in every game."

"I dedicate this innings to the whole country of Pakistan."

"There was no pressure for me, I made my debut here at Gaddafi Stadium. The aim was to build partnerships like the one I had with Ahmed."

"It was quite humid which is why we were perhaps struggling a bit. We are working very hard on our fitness and will continue to do so in future."

"It's quite difficult to play outside Pakistan. It's a different thing playing at home as we know the ground and we have the support of the crowd."

"My aim is to try and score in every match that I play. It's very enjoyable to score runs at home."

"Our aim is to win the series 3-0."
