Afghanistan vs Ireland 2nd T20I Highlights – 11 August 2022

Mohammad Nabi:

“We didn’t read the pitch properly, we thought it was dry but the ball was seaming a lot. We were 30 runs short. We threw away wickets back to back up front. We started with a quick because it was a seaming wicket.” Fielding: “We missed a lot of balls, hopefully, we will come back well in the next match. We will work on the mistakes.”

Andy Balbirnie:

“We were brilliant in the powerplay. Josh Little gets better and better. We’ve been great against world-class layers in the last few weeks.” Fielding: “We know we have to be good at it. We are working on various things, glad to see the benefits for it.” His own batting: “You’ve to remind yourself you’ve done good stuff in the past. We’re gelling well as a team as we’ve been playing a lot together.”

Josh Little is Player of the Match for his 2/18:

“I had a nice little rhythm. Something I was successful at the World Cup last year, always going to look at what works for me. if you get wickets in the powerplay you always give yourself a chance.”
