Naib commends Warner, Smith for ignoring jeers

Naib commends Warner, Smith for ignoring jeers

Jun 02, 2019 - 09:09

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Afghan captain on Saturday commended Australian batsmen David Warner and Steve Smith for starring in the holders’ emphatic win over his side.

Warner and Smith forged a 91-run partnership to see the holders romp home, with more than 15 overs to spare, Warner remained unbeaten at 89, while Smith smashed an impressive half century.

Gulbadin Naib extolled the duo for being unnerved by boos and jeers from the Bristol crowd for playing too gingerly.

 “I have a lot of respect for Smith and Warner,” Naib said of the Australians' ability to concentrate on their game.

“It's a crowd. You cannot do anything about them. If you focus on the crowd, then you don’t focus on your game.” Naib was quoted as saying by the Cricketer.
