Moles hopes Afghan team can demonstrate performance
PERTH (Pajhwok): Andy Moles, the coach of Afghanistan cricket team, expressed optimism that his team were capable of regrouping after a record drubbing at the hands of Australia in a defeat he felt like hit by a “freight train”.
Media reports that Moles defended the decision to bowl after winning the toss, saying they believed their only possible hope of winning against Australia was to chase down a total.
Despite the loss, Moles was hopeful they could rebound for their upcoming clashes against New Zealand and England. “I’ll be doing my best to make sure they don’t go into their shells,” he said.
He went on to say that “I keep telling them to express themselves and play with the freedom Afghanistan cricket has been known for.”
“We came up short, we have to get better and we have to make sure we are ready for what will be a tough examination against New Zealand. “Playing quick bowling is about character and we need to show more character,” he observed.
