Not a good start, but we tried our best: Mohammad Nabi

Afghanistan skipper Mohammad Nabi was disappointed with the team’s loss against England. However, he expressed that they tried their best to play good cricket. Nabi asserted that the lack of runs on the board in the first innings hampered their chances to win the match.

It’s not a good start, but we tried our best to play good cricket. Everyone knows England is one of the best teams. The pitch was more suitable for England. We didn’t put a good total on the board. They took 2-3 good catches. We thought 140-150 would be a good total fight but we couldn’t get there. If we put in a good total, we have quality spinners. I, Rash, and Mujeeb have the experience of playing in the BBL. We’ll look to learn from our mistakes in the next game,” said Mohammad Nabi post-match as quoted by Cricbuzz.
