After winning the match England captain Eoin Morgan said,
“I think Clive Llyod can still hit the ball longer than me, especially with my bad back. Today was fantastic for us. The wicket was very good. I thought everything from the way we started – our openers started well. Bairstow and Root were excellent, and then we just took a gamble and it paid off. I didn’t really think it was going to be my day at any point, to be honest. I’ve had a bad back. It looks like I’m getting old (laughs). There are many guys in the dressing room and who can produce an innings like that – but to match up to the youngsters is amazing. I didn’t think I could produce an innings like that, honestly. Afghanistan is a side with a lot of potentials – a completely different challenge with their spin attack.”
“ I have changed in terms of my game – everyone plays the shots I started my career with – the scoops and the sweeps, etc. However, right now, I’m stronger down the ground than I have ever been, and life seems to have come full circle that way, because cricket has evolved in a way that there are fields that the oppositions set for those funky shots now. The next two-three games are pretty crucial. I want to bring that level of intensity in every game we play. Don’t want to slack off. You will make mistakes. We spilled a couple of catches today which can happen. Throw Stokes in there as well bowling 90mph (competition between Wood and Archer). Guys competing at this level is amazing.”
