By India Today Web Desk: Zimbabwe’s match-winner against Ireland, Sikandar Raza, has said the team’s goal is to get to the Super-12 stage of the ongoing ICC Men’s T20 World Cup. Raza was adjudged the player of the match for his knock of 82 runs in just 48 balls that guided Zimbabwe to a 31-run win over Ireland.

Speaking after the match, the all-rounder said the Zimbabwe team isn’t at the tournament just to take part but to advance to the Super-12 stage and face some big teams.

“When we qualified, as much as we were happy to be here, we knew that our journey is not done. We didn’t just come here because we are happy to be representing Zimbabwe. The goal we brought was to get into the Super 12 and take some of the big teams and see where we go,” said Raza.

The Zimbabwean said he wanted to take the innings as deep as possible and didn’t want the emotions to get the best of him against Ireland.

“The only thing I said to Sean was let’s try to take the team as far as we both can. I just wanted to bat. I didn’t want to let any emotions get the best of me. I just wanted to time the ball well and take it from there. I thought the wicket got harder, or I got tired, the second phase of my innings was poor,” Raza added.

Speaking about his great run of form in 2022, Raza said all he tries to do differently is channel his emotions the right way.

“There is no secret to be honest. The only secret I can tell you is to try to channel all the emotions of success and failure into the right way and try to compete with the best in the world so we can represent Zimbabweans and put our flag among the best in the world,” said Raza.

Zimbabwe will now face the West Indies on October 19, who suffered a shock defeat at the hands of Scotland in their opening match.
