Afghanistan opener Rahmanullah Gurbaz missed out on his maiden T20I hundred against Zimbabwe when he was dismissed in the first game of the three-match series,
“Of course (I regret). Every player would want to get a T20 hundred but my time will come,” he said after the game on Wednesday (March 17). “I don’t mind missing the hundred as I always want to score runs for my team. I want to give a good start to the team and this is my role. My senior players and coaches kept on telling me to play my natural game and give us a good momentum in the first six overs.” he added.
“I think the wicket was good for batting and little bit dead for the spinners. When I went to the pitch I tried to look the pitch for first two overs and then I play my natural game and the wicket was good for batting,” said Gurbaz adding that he does not believe in the philosophy of picking on any particular bowler in the T20s.
“I just wait for the loose ball and there is nothing like pre-plan or making any plan for any particular bowler,” he said. “The only thing that I do is watch the ball till the end,” he added.
