We lost close matches: Rashid Khan
“We’ve been working hard on our shortcomings and making sincere efforts to eradicate them. We lacked the finishing ability in the World Cup, but fought well against all teams and lost close matches. We should have won 4-5 matches there.”
“After the 2015 World Cup, we didn’t get a chance to play against teams like Australia, New Zealand, England, etc., so understanding them was difficult. We are hopeful we can come good at the next World Cup after having a good experience of playing against big teams over the next four years,” Rashid Khan said.
“My boys were good against Bangladesh in the Test last time. We are natural power-hitters, so smashing sixes in 50-over and T20 cricket isn’t a problem for us. Test cricket requires so much patience and I need my boys to mature in that format also.”
“Right now we are focused on the Asia Cup and this series provides a perfect opportunity to get ready for that. Playing against West Indies will help prepare well for the next T20 World Cup,” he said.
“It’s not at all pressure. I enjoy my cricket in all formats. When I go to bat, I play like a batsman without having pressure and don’t feel any pressure even when I bowl. The pressure is a mental thing. Captaincy becomes a pressure only when you start thinking about the results. One should be focused on his game. If everyone thinks like that, things become easier.”
