Pakistan's veteran player Sohail Abbas said it was a great feeling and he and his teammates felt that they were playing in Lahore or Karachi. Sohail made the comment after his team's 2-1 victory over the Spaniards.
"After a long time, we found some crowd support in India. It was a great feeling and we felt as if we are playing in Lahore or Karachi," said the star drag flicker.
Having lost their first match to India, the win against Spain has brightened Pakistan's hopes of fighting for a semifinal berth from their pool.
"The pool has opened now and after Australia's loss to England in the first game, it seems that every team has a chance of making the semis," he said.
The veteran defender went on to add that Pakistan were taking one game at a time and will quickly put this victory behind them.
"We will put this victory behind us and prepare for the next match. We are not thinking of the semifinal or the final. We are taking one game at a time," he said.
