Pakistan captain Shoaib Malik admits his side paid the price for poor batting in the ICC World Twenty20 final.
Malik's side got within six runs of victory against India at The Wanderers, after what had been a disastrous reply.
Misbah-ul-Haq (43) and Sohail Tanvir (12) almost rescued the match at the death, but in the end Pakistan were all out for just 152.
Having restricted their arch-rivals to just 157, Malik is disappointed his side did not go on to win.
"They have a strong batting line-up, but we restricted them to under 160 and that was our plan," Malik told Sky Sports 1.
"Unfortunately our batting line-up didn't follow through, but the way we bowled was superb.
"I don't think it was the pressure we just had some bad shots."
Despite the defeat all-rounder Shahid Afridi was named Player of the tournament in South Africa.
And after their first round elimination at the World Cup in the Caribbean Pakistan can head into their home series with South Africa, which starts on October 1st with renewed belief.
