Further says that his job is as a floater and he likes that. Tells that it's redemption for them and they have shown to the world that they are a good team.

Rahmanullah Gurbaz (84 off 45 balls) is declared the Player of the Match despite ending on the losing side. Says that he is disappointed with the result and feels that they were 25 runs short. Shares that he was trying to stay positive and play his natural game. Admits that they didn't finish their batting innings well and they can do better. Tells that in his busy schedule, he just tries to follow the process and adds that Jonathan Trott, the head coach, works very hard with them. Hopes to do well and take that momentum to the T20 World Cup.
