West Indies skipper Kieron Pollard on Monday said his team “has to plan” how to play against Afghanistan in the first ODI of the three-match series in India’s Lucknow.
"We, as a team, we have to plan how we are going to structure our fifty overs of batting and then our fifty overs of bowling. Each and every one of us is a good player and has (our) own right to show what we have to offer," Pollard told reporters in the pre-match conference.
He also praised the spin bowling attack of the home side and called Rashid Khan a “world-class bowler.”
"Rashid Khan is a world-class bowler. It was seen by all of us and all around the world,” he said, adding “there is no secret about it. Nabi himself has been doing well, he is a classical off-spinner. Mujeeb has done well for himself.”
Afghanistan is scheduled to play three ODIs and as many T20Is against West Indies, starting on November 6. All the matches will be played at the Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow.
