Afghanistan head coach Jonathan Trott urged the batters to improve their batting ahead of the do-or-die Super-8s match against Bangladesh.

The Afghans stunned the world beating the defending champions by 21 runs and they would be looking to snatch the victory against Bangladesh for the semi-final berth.

“I think the skill was the partnership that we had, the platform that we had, and then that enabled us to accelerate a little bit. I still don't think we batted all that well towards the end of the innings. We left a lot of runs out there, and that's something we need to work on and get better at,” Trott said in the pre-match press conference.

Trott mentioned that Afghanistan have a clear understanding of the venue after the Super 8 match between India and Australia.

“Certainly, when you have that type of platform, you need to be able to capitalize with the amount of wickets in hand that we had. So, looking forward to the Bangladesh game, that's going to be key and how we play that. So, that's always a nice thing, having played at the venue and on the same pitch that we're playing on against Bangladesh and having a little bit of knowledge,” Trott added.
