Jonathan Trott is the head coach of the Afghanistan team Under the captaincy of Rashid Khan, Afghanistan team has reached the Super 8

New Delhi. Afghanistan cricket team head coach Jonathan Trott is very happy with the team's reaching the Super 8 of the T20 World Cup 2024. However, he says that the best of the Afghan team is yet to come. Trott said that Afghanistan has to play a match against the West Indies in the league stage. This match will see where their team is. Afghanistan defeated Papua New Guinea by 7 wickets on Thursday to make it to the Super Eight with their third consecutive win in the group. With this result, New Zealand, who made it to the final of the 2021 tournament, were eliminated.

Former England player Jonathan Trott said, 'We still have one match left, an important group match, and it will be a good measure of where we are against a strong West Indies team, which won a great match last night (against New Zealand). So it's good to win tonight and qualify like this. It's a good feeling to come to the World Cup and win three matches, but also to accept the reality that we haven't won anything yet. We have some important cricket matches to play in which we have to perform well.

'Afghanistan team is very talented'
Trott said, 'I believe we are very talented and when we play our best cricket we can compete with anyone. We have seen this. I think we have still not played our best game. There are still some things we need to work on and we will work on them in the next few days to give ourselves the best chance to beat the major teams. ' The former England batsman praised Farooqi and credited bowling coach Hamid Hassan for preparing him. He has contributed a lot in taking Afghanistan to the Super 8.
