Sarfraz Ahmed, Pakistan Captain, has stated after his side's highly impressive win in the first match at Lord's that he wants his team to seek excellence in their games by constantly striving for improvement.

Pakistan are on the verge of winning their first series in England since 1996, as they are now 1-0 up with only one game to go at Headingley which starts today. 

Ahead of the all-important encounter, Sarfraz was heard saying "We need to keep improving all the time, As well as we played at Lord's, we can still play better than that. We made four 50s at Lord's -- and if one of them had gone on to the big hundred that would've been even better. (Same with the bowlers) if they take three or four wickets, make it five or six."

Sarfraz Ahmed knows the historic relevance of this match, as well.

"If we do win this, it will be a series we'll never forget, The last time we won a series in England was in 1996 when Wasim and Waqar were around, and we drew at Leeds then,"

"We have to forget Lord's and move on to this now, If we want to move ahead as a team we have to forget our wins. We did well, we enjoyed it for two days, but now we're here If we are to move up in the rankings we need to forget our wins and keep moving on."
