In a one-sided encounter, India defeated Afghanistan by 66 runs in their ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 match in UAE on Wednesday (November 3). But Afghanistan spinner Rashid Khan said that the defeat would not affect Afghanistan players and they are still high on confidence.

“Looking to the wicket it`s a wicket where you can chase 170, 180, but that extra 30 runs, it`s always like a good — like in India they have a big batting lineup so they try to use the last three, four overs, which they took the total to 210,” said Rashid during the post-match press conference.

“Yeah, I think that was the kind of mindset of the players, that already the Indian team, they struggled in the first two games in the batting department, so we as a team just tried to attack in that department which they struggled, and if we have success we can be on a winning side. They played good cricket, and they just took the target to 210, which was on this wicket a bit much, like 20, 25 runs. But yeah, credit goes to them,” he added.

When asked whether high expectations from Afghanistan is taking a toll on players, Rashid said: “I don`t think that there is a kind of pressure on us expectation-wise. We know our skills. It`s all about playing against those big teams, it takes time. We have to play with them more in a year in order to get used to them, understand them, their weakness, strong point. Then you work on your areas where you can come back stronger. I think as a team we hardly get the opportunity to play with them, against India and other good sides. We don`t get that opportunity. We only play with them in the World Cup.”

“As a team you have that kind of big team pressure. We know playing all around the world in the leagues with them and we`re used to with them, but still, the rest of the players, they need that kind of belief in themselves that we can deliver against a big side, as well. But it`s just kind of that belief. Once it comes, I think we can beat any side in a day, but that will come when we play more cricket with those teams,” he added.
