Rahmanullah Gurbaz scored 80 runs for Afghanistan. Mujeeb took 3 wickets in bowling. He was also awarded the man of the match award. Here’s what he had to say after receiving the award…
“It’s a proud moment. We’ve worked so hard for a day like this. We’ve beaten the defending champions. I think it’s a great achievement for us as a nation.
Team captain Shahidi said, ‘The whole nation will be proud of us. This win has given us great confidence. Mujeeb has been amazing in both batting and bowling when the team needed it. We have the talent. There is hope. We didn’t do some things right in the last matches.
The star player of the team, Rashid Khan spoke about the 2016 T20 World Cup where we restricted England to 142 runs at the same ground. We lost that match because of a lapse in batting. We reminded ourselves of that before today’s match.
