Gulbadin Naib’s Afghanistan cricket team that has lost all the eight matches in the league stage so far and the captain admits that the team needs good fast bowlers. Even though Afghanistan is struggling to claim a win in the tournament, they have managed to give tough fight to most of the top teams in the tournament including India.

Skipper Gulbadin Naib said that if we look at the team in the last two or three years, they are just depending on their spinners, especially when Mujeeb joined the team. Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Rashid Khan are the two most reliable bowlers in the team and have taken many crucial wickets for the team. “We have two spinners in Rashid and Mujeeb. So if you work on the fast bowlers in the last two or three years; maybe we have good pacers now in this tournament,” he added.

Naib also admitted that the team didn’t find the fast bowlers helpful which is a big problem for them. He mentioned that because they worked on the spinners, they have World class spinners in the team. He admitted that even if the team finds two or three good fast bowlers then it will be good for the in this World Cup.

He stated that hopefully in the future they can bring in good fast bowlers and also mentioned that he’ll be working on it.

Afghanistan will play its last match of the tournament today against the Windies at Headingley Carnegie, Leeds and will play their best in order to end the World Cup with a win.
