NZ vs AFG: Afghanistan captain Hashmatullah Shahidi urges middle-order to take more responsibility


Afghanistan captain Hashmatullah Shahidi is pleased with his team’s top-order performance in the ongoing World Cup, but he wants his middle-order batters to take more responsibility. Afghanistan has scored 156, 272, and 284 runs in this event, but the majority of the runs have come from the top order.

“We know that we are doing very good at the top order. So, we have to take the responsibility as a player, everyone in the middle order. We are doing the first phase very good.
