Afghanistan – 2 | Pakistan – 1. Afghanistan might have lost tonight, but they will be really pleased with their first ever T20I series win against their neighbours. Rashid Khan collects the trophy as the Afghainstan players along with their family members pose for the cameras. Pakistan looked rusty in the first two games and lost the series there itself, but they were right on the money today. Their batters posted a massive total, and the bowlers turned up as they defended it without breaking a sweat. Ihsanullah was quite impressive and looks like he has got a really bright future for Pakistan. For now, this is Nikhil signing off on behalf of Abhinav and Vinod. IPL 2023 starts in less than a week’s time, so see you guys soon!
Rashid Khan, Afghanistan captain: Special occasion to be part of this team, it was a great effort from everyone. We won the series, but we have areas to improve on. It was a great learning curve for us. We responded well under pressure, we have struggled under pressure in the past. Happy that we chased in a couple of games, it was difficult to bat. But we need to work on a lot of areas in the future. This was a much better wicket than the first two games. I felt 10 an over was gettable on this wicket. But the run-out and Najib got hurt, and we lost wickets in the middle. Any series after this is a good preparation for us before the World Cup. Every game teaches us and the youngsters are going to be much better (in the upcoming games). Need to stay fit and work hard, need to make it as hard as possible for the batters. Need to keep it simple and not experiment much. Don’t want to be confused and I need to keep hitting the right areas.
Mohammad Nabi, Player of the Series: First two games were played in tough conditions, back to form after a long time. I tried to give my best while bowling and batting. It wasn’t a proper call and wasn’t a good decision to take the second run (that resulted in the run-out).
Shadab Khan, Player of the Match: We wanted to finish on a high note and we have done that. We had to adapt the conditions and the batters managed to do that today. We needed to play for Pakistan’s pride and we did it. The main motive of this series was to give the youngsters a chance, hopefully they will get confidence from these games and it will help them in the long run.
