It was really tough to play Pakistan the other night, a tight game and straightaway the next game is against India, totally tough. We werent mentally prepared for that game. We tried our best to prepare but the boys were not ready mentally. Today we tried our best, with the way KL Rahul and Virat Kohli started, we dropped catches also and in the batting we didnt expect that much swing. As a captain with the way we started the tournament was on a high morale, we didnt finish well but we played well. Afghanistan skipper Mohammad Nabi
Firstly I am grateful for how the day went today. Time away from the game gave me a good chance to sit back and observe a lot of things about me. I mentioned one special person - Anushka - who stood by me through these tough times and I mentioned her as she has seen the absolute raw side of me throughout all these months. She was the one putting things in perspective for me, kept giving me the right kind of guidance, vision moving forward and I came back into the system as a relaxed person. It was just about enjoying the game, understanding the game and what God blessed you with. Today was the build of the last few games, I batted out of my skin to be honest and I surprised myself. Man-of-the-Match: Virat Kohli (122* off 61)
