Hafeez said this was not the best of performance from Pakistan as they were all out for a paltry 82, chasing 167 to qualify for the semifinals.
"Today we did not play well. We were a little bit panicky early in the chase. Not the best of display. I want to thankfans for supporting us and as a team we want to say sorry. This is part of the game and Inshallah we will come back hard," Hafeez said after the defeat.
He said everything changed in the last four overs of the West Indies innings and when Dwyane Bravo and skipper Darren Sammy went berserk.
"We didn't play well in the final four overs, credit to West Indies. Sammy and Bravo finished well for them. In the first 16 overs we bowled very well, but they got the momentum in the final four overs. They took the game away from us," Hafeez said.
