After Losing the match against England, Afghanistan skipper Gulbadin Naib said,
How they played after 30 overs was special. Credit to Morgan for how he batted. One of the best innings I’ve ever seen. This wicket was totally different from the ones we’ve been playing on. Mujeeb did really well, did his job. Unfortunately, Rashid was expensive and didn’t deliver. We did a lot of good things in the field, but we dropped the catch of Morgan. And he capitalized. I worked hard in every department. We’re improving day by day. I have a lot of work to do in every department. Big target but the message to the boys was to play their normal game. Playing fifty overs is a good thing for our batters.
