T20 WORLD CUP 2021: AFGHANISTAN VS SCOTLAND, MATCH AND STATS REVIEW | AFGHANISTAN BEAT SCOTLAND BY 130 RUNS.

POST MATCH PRESENTATION :

Mohammad Nabi | Afghanistan captain: It’s important to win at the start of the tournament. Both the openers started well, we finished the powerplay on a good note. The running between the wickets was good and Najib played well to help as post that total. We have some good spinners in the form of Rashid and Mujeeb, they played everywhere in the world. We have a very good combination. Mujeeb is playing his first T20 World Cup match and he got the Player of the Match award, that’s good to see.

Coetzer: Clearly wasn’t one of our better days. Sometimes things don’t go to plan. This is a very good Afghanistan team with very good bowlers, they bowled fantastically, so need to give credit to them. But Watt bowled well for us today. We fought hard in the field, it’s just a level check where the standards are. We got a bunch of players and we’ll try to reflect that and get ready for the next game. The belief in the players is the key. As a group, we’ll sit together and try to bounce back.

Mujeeb Ur Rahman (MOM): Very happy that we won our first match. This is my first World Cup game and I won the Man of the Match. The fans bring in a lot of energy and that’s why we played positive cricket tonight.
