Pakistan men's team fast bowling coach Shaun Tait attended the post-match presser after England hammered Pakistan by eight wickets in the sixth match of the T20I series.

The series is now level at 3-3 with the decider to take place tomorrow at Lahore's Gaddafi Stadium.

Former Australian pacer started the presser in a witty way and joked that his team makes him attend media interactions only when Pakistan record such demoralizing defeats

"So when we lose badly they send me. They send me when we get beaten badly," Tait said with a laugh.

Talking about England's onslaught, Tait reckoned that Pakistan bowlers could have bowled tighter lines, but also said that T20 is a frequent ups and downs format.

"They just attacked us. They came out attacking, every ball they tried to hit a boundary. It worked for the first three overs and, in some way, it put our bowlers off guard a little bit. We didn’t do a lot wrong and it was just great batting. Sometimes you have got to give it to the batting team,” Tait said.

“We could have bowled a bit tighter, we were a little bit loose. But it happens in T20 cricket. As you are seeing in this series, it’s up and down, so I can say anything and it doesn’t really matter,” he stated.

Tait backed Pakistan to make a comeback in the deciding game of the series. “We can come back in the next game, hopefully bowl well and win the match, but it’s been a great series. We bowled well at times, sometimes we haven’t."
