Jasprit Bumrah: ‘We didn’t play him well’: Afghanistan coach Jonathan Trott discloses reasons behind defeat against India

NEW DELHI: Afghanistan coach Jonathan Trott pointed out the failure to execute plans against India’s pace bowler Jasprit Bumrah for their loss in the T20 World Cup Super Eight clash on Thursday. Trott also expressed his disappointment over his team’s shot selection in their defeat.
India triumphed over Afghanistan by 47 runs in the Group 1 contest at Kensington Oval.

Bumrah was almost unplayable during the match, claiming three Afghan wickets while conceding only seven runs in his four overs.

“Obviously, Bumrah is going to be a key bowler for any side. For India, he’s crucial and we needed to play him better. His figures suggest we didn’t play him very well. We’d obviously spoken about it and how we were going to play him. So, we weren’t able to execute that and, yeah, that’s very disappointing,” Trott was quoted as saying by Reuters after the match.
“Obviously disappointed with a few of the shots or the decision-making,” Trott added.

Trott supported skipper Rashid Khan‘s decision to use up his overs early and emphasized the need for other bowlers to step up.
“When you bowl three for 26, I think no matter when you bowl you’ve done a good job,” Trott said of Rashid.
“It’s not just one bowler. Other people have to bowl the 16 other overs to be bowled, and it’s the responsibility of other bowlers to be able to execute the plans that we put in place…I thought Rash bowled brilliantly today. He has high expectations of himself and he delivered today. Everybody else could follow suit. That would be great.”
