That is it from this match. The final game of the Super Four is coming up. It is Sri Lanka versus Pakistan on 9th September at 7.30 pm IST (2 pm GMT). Do join us for the build up as well. Cheers!
Virat Kohli is the PLAYER OF THE MATCH. He says he is grateful for how the game went today. Adds that his partner has seen a raw side of him. Tells that he came back to the system as a relaxed person and tried to enjoy the game. Shares that today's innings was the build up of the grind he has been doing for the last few years. Admits that it was surprising that his 60-odd runs were seen as a failure but he doesn't blame anyone. Says there is no ego of what he has created but gratitude for how blessed he is. Adds the coach backed him and told him just to bat without much pressure. Reckons there were a lot of advice coming his way but his approach didn't change. Says people are entitled to have opinions but they don't know what is going inside the head. Ends by saying he is blessed and is enjoying what he is doing.
KL Rahul, the skipper of India says he is coming after a big injury and he realized that it is not easy to find the rhythm back. Adds that he somewhat found his form during the Hong Kong game, when he hit one six. Shares that the results have been disappointing, they came to the tournament thinking to play the finals but the results didn't go their way. Tells that they need to sit back and asses the tournament. Ends by saying the vision is the World Cup and hopefully the learnings will help them for the World Cup.
Mohammad Nabi, the skipper of Afghanistan says it was really tough to play against Pakistan and now against India, it was tough and mentally they were not prepare. Today they also tried their best but Virat Kohli and KL Rahul gave India a good start and in their batting, they lost the early wicket. Tells yes as a captain they started the tournament on a good note but didn't finish on a good note.
...Presentation coming up...
Bhuvneshwar Kumar is up for a chat. He says he was just bowling in the right areas and it was just his day. Adds that the white-ball doesn't swing much but it happened for him today and he hit the right areas. Shares that it is a bit unpredictable with the white ball. On Deepak Chahar, he is coming after an injury so it tends to be a bit hard to settle. On the tournament, he says they are not in a good position but it is good to play these tight games before the World Cup.
Afghanistan looked mentally and physically drained. They dropped numerous catches at the start which is unlike them, the bowling wasn't up to the mark and it felt like the loss against Pakistan was still in their heads. In reply with the bat, Afghanistan had no answers against some quality bowling of swing-king, Bhuvneshwar Kumar. They lost half their side inside the Powerplay and after that, it was just formalities. Ibrahim Zadran was the only positive from this match as he scored a fifty. Playing back-to-back games against two big teams was always going to be hard for them but more than that, it was the loss against Pakistan.
A clinical performance from India and they end Asia Cup, 2022 on a high. An excellent performance from them. They needed a few players to get their form back and all of them grabbed the opportunity. KL Rahul was back with runs as he scored his fifty. Virat Kohli finally scored his maiden and 71st century to post a huge score. With the ball, it was the experience of Bhuvneshwar Kumar who took a five-fer. His spell was enough to bundle the opposition out. A professional performance from India and they end their campaign on a positive note.
