Sophie Devine (New Zealand Women Captain): "A complete performance with the bat. That is what we want. Then with the ball, we had to scrap and Sidra played well. But we came and fought to get over the line. The aim was to do well and know within our group and glad we did well and what we are capable of. We would have batted first in any case. So, was not disappointed in losing the toss. We would have batted first anyways. We know Queenstown and put the runs on the board. Good to be 1-0 up in the series now."  
Fatima Sana (Pakistan Women Stand-in Captain): "Yes, but next time we will do best. Devine took the game away from us. Yes, maybe it was the right decision and it was Nida who took it so ok with that. It was freezing not just cold. Yes, hopefully, we will get better at our areas and we need to get early wickets going forward. Yes, I think Diana is a main loss and we will have to deal with it. Hope to do well in the next game."  
Suzie Bates (Player of the Match): "Yes, I do. The weather could have been a warmer. We love this wicket and the crowd. Good pace and bounce here. Their spinners did a great job to take pace off the ball. Bernadine did well and then Amelia and Sophie gave us the score. Pakistan came hard at us, but we controlled it well and got the job done in the end. I am happy to contribute to the team and good that we won today. I have got a few matches left in me and want to contribute to the team. Lanning is done which is sad, but I am happy where I am. Sophie was great and the way she played was great and she was outstanding with the ball. We would have got 300 but her innings took us to 350+. Great knock and a great win."
