Wicketkeeper-batsman Rahmanullah Gurbaz still believes in Afghanistan and believes they can succeed "Every single match is really important for us. We shouldn't lose our hope just because we lost the series. Actually, we are looking for ten points so we will try our best in the next game."
"We still have a lot of matches left to qualify for the World Cup,'' Gurbaaz said after their lose, as quoted by cricbuzz Gurbaz is not satisfied with the game against Bangladesh, but believes that Afghanistan has the strength to achieve a positive result "If you look at the target, we tried to keep them within 250 runs.
But their total was a little bit more than our expectations. The wicket wasn't that much difficult for batting but we made some mistakes like the run-out at the start." "I think 33 extras is too much in ODI cricket.
We are working on that, so hopefully, in the next game we should not do it again. It will be better in the next game," he said.
Afghanistan is surprised
Afghanistan also seems surprised by the good play of opponents who have obviously analyzed their opponent well.
"People expect a little bit more from us. I don't think we have problems against pace but they have good control. They had a good day in batting and bowling. "They knew that we have the No.1 spin attack so they made wickets for pacers.
This is Bangladesh's home series, so we expected them not to make a spinners' wicket for us. The main thing is, we didn't do well as a batting unit." Gurbaz also reveald what the biggest problem was. Clearly, they can do it much better "Hopefully, we will do well in the next game. It has nothing to do against pace or spin; we just needed to bat a bit longer," he added.
