Colombo: Afghanistan coach Kabir Khan has credited his team's respectable performance against India in the World Twenty20 opener to the players who "stuck by each other during difficult times."
"It's the unity among the players that has led to this improved show. This team is one unit. The players have faced a lot of difficult times due to war in the country and being in the camps," Khan told mediapersons during the post-match press conference after losing by 23 runs on Wednesday.
"There are times when a player has faced problems as his family has struggled. In such conditions, the others in the team rally around that person and help him like their own family members," he added.
