There Was Nervousness Among New Players: Stand-In Skipper Shadab Khan
Stand-in skipper Shadab Khan said that most of them were nervous about playing international cricket for the first time. He also lamented the series loss in the process.
“It was a good score. We were struggling again. If you look at stats, if you lose 3 wickets in powerplay, you lose 70 percent of the games. I think there’s nervousness – they’re playing for the first time for Pakistan (the new batters). We have to back them. Sometimes you don’t perform but attitude matters. That’s more important for me. They have talent. They will be great cricketers. Will play for pride tomorrow,” he said at the post-match presentation ceremony.
Pakistan chose to bat first in the second T20I, but the inexperienced top-order was dismissed quickly. Imad Wasim smashed 64 not out off 57 balls and captain Shadab Khan made 32 to increase the final total to 130 for 6. Rahmanullah Gurbaz (44) and Ibrahim Zadran (38) led Afghanistan’s chase before Najibullah Zadran scored a rapid unbeaten 23 and Mohammad Nabi was 14 not out to guide their team to 133 for 3 with a ball to spare.
