Afghanistan Captain Said They Made Errors in Bangladesh Game

Naib said they made a series of errors in their Bangladesh game

Afghanistan captain Gulbadin Naib admitted they made a series of errors in their ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 match against Bangladesh on Monday. Bangladesh won the game by 62 runs while Afghanistan only scored 200 in 47 overs.

“I’m happy with the toss, but if you look at the match, we missed a couple of catches and gave some extra runs,” said Naib. “We gave away 30, 35 runs. Because of misfielding we missed the opportunity again.”

“Again, we didn’t bowl in the right area in (the) first 10 overs, and they scored like 50-something,” continued Naib.

“If you look for the wicket, it’s chasable,” said Naib when asked if the Tigers’ 267 with 7 in 50 overs was a realistic target to chase. “But praise goes to (Bangladesh all-rounder) Shakib (Al Hasan). He bowled really well. He’s the world’s number one all-rounder.”

“He has a lot of experience, so he took time on the wicket when he batted. Also, he bowled really well, according to the plan,” continued Naib.

Naib also stated that he was disappointed with the bowling and fielding of Afghanistan spin bowler Rashid Khan.

“He’s giving his 100 percent, but if you look for the fielding side, I’m a little disappointed,” said Naib. “He’s also disappointed about the fielding. One time he’s very angry in the field. I asked him just keep relaxed and just focus on your bowling. So I think he missed his momentum there because of fielding.”’

Afghanistan will play next against Pakistan on Saturday at Headingley Carnegie. The minnows currently have +92500 odds to win the entire tournament.
