“Efforts were required for come back in series after losing two matches continuously, though I am happy to see that batters and bowlers accepted the challenge and won the series,” he added.

Moeen Ali also praised the hospitality he received during his stayed in Pakistan and loved the foods of Karachi.

Ali was also satisfied with the security arrangements during the series.

“The security has been outstanding and much more than we expected. We were looked after very well,” he said.
