With so much quality on offer, things will improve for the better.
Batting let Afghanistan down in World Cup 2019
Batting is where the Afghan side suffered immensely.
Nobody went on to take that extra bit of responsibility.
Players who got set, often threw their wickets away by playing expensive shots.
Just one score of 250-plus tells you the story.
They kept losing wickets throughout at regular intervals.
This is one area Afghanistan need to improve and proper execution of plans will help them.
Pace department needs work and time
Besides the batting, the Afghanistan cricket team will also need to focus on the pace bowling. They conceded aplenty, and were inconsistent. This hurt the side. Gulbadin Naib and Dawlat Zadran took nine and eight wickets respectively. Another area that needs work.
Afghanistan will emerge out stronger
More exposure of playing in foreign conditions against big teams will give them plenty of courage and the ability to learn.
Also, youngsters like Ikram Ali Khil, Mujeeb and Rashid need to be nurtured well and backed to progress.
They need to get in more young pacers and give them the license to express themselves.
