Afghanistan captain breaks silence over defeat against Pakistan
ISLAMABAD - Afghanistan’s captain Gulbadin Naib defended his disastrous decision to bring himself on to bowl towards the end of a gripping match against Pakistan on Saturday, a move that cost 18 runs in a single over.
"We had the feeling they weren't targeting every bowler," Naib said, adding that "Every team has their plans and I thought the crucial point is for the 46th over that I bowled and 18 runs, it's not really good."
"If Hamid was there maybe I didn't bowl more than three or four overs because I do not have enough speed for this kind of surface," he added.
But Naib gave credit to Pakistan.
