We were going to have a bat as well, it’s a used surface. I think both sides have match winners and it’s a mix of youth and experience. We are playing with the same team, no changes.
Kane Williamson, New Zealand captain
We will bat first. It was a night game in Abu Dhabi, so we bowled first considering the dew factor. It’s a day game, so we want to post a decent total on the board. Mujeeb is back, he is in the team, Sharafuddin is out. We will try our best and try to win.
Mohammad Nabi, Afghanistan captain
We know the challenge Afghanistan pose. They’ve got batters who can hurt us & bowlers who can restrict us: Martin Guptill
No, there is no pressure on us, we treat this and will get into this game same as any other game and will plan according to the situation. No external pressure on us as we do play according to our needs and requirements, we will do what is best for our team and what suits us
Afghanistan media manager Abdullah Khan Pakthani
India have done what they had to, all eyes on Afghanistan-New Zealand now
