    Some quotes:

    I don’t believe that the presence of chief selector [Inzamam] has anything to do with our performance. He was appointed as the chief selector by the PCB, so it is his duty to attend the event and doing selection alongside the captain and coach. Imam.

    We don’t know if they lost on purpose. We were just trying to win our matches. Everyone wanted to give their hundred percent. said Babar. We weren’t thinking about why someone else lost or not.

    It was my first World Cup. We lost two matches in the first half. But after that we made a comeback. Everyone performed well. Gained a lot of experience. Babar said.

    It was our first World Cup. It was really special. We won five from nine matches so it was a good campaign. Unfortunately we couldn’t qualify because of the net run-rate. I wanted to contribute more but I will learn from my mistakes and perform better in the future. Imam said.

    Selection committee decisions are with the board. My job is to perform well. I can’t tell you my future and neither can you. I believe in Allah and if he wills it, I will be in the team. Imam said.

    It’s the boards decision. My job is to play cricket. And I am giving my 100 percent. This decision is by the PCB. I believe in hard work and I believe in myself. The rest is upto the PCB. Babar said.

    The loss in the first match affected us in the tournament. Other teams were also prepared and there to play. We couldn’t apply ourselves in the first game. We kept getting out and we couldn’t fight back. Babar said.

    I am still young at international level. I am in the learning process. I have a lot of backing and therefore I am blessed. If you are satisfied you can’t perform better. I set high goals so that I can keep getting better. Imam said.

    Our seniors never made us feel like they are seniors. They kept being really friendly. They never reacted like they were seniors. They guided us in everything. They told us to stick with the basics. Babar said.

    Groupings talk started after India match. When we started winning the talk died down. If we eat in a group they say grouping is happening. After you start winning nobody talks about that. No grouping is there. We all go with each other everywhere. Babar said.

    Agree with Imam. Inzi had nothing to do with Pakistan's exit!

    After Inzi left following the criticism, the team started to perform.

    Based on the responses it seems Babar is aspirant for captaincy but Imam is not at the moment. Imam carries himself much better though in media and seems to be a more leadership material for the future.
