Here we finished two close games and we were unlucky we couldn’t finish with a win in the last two matches. But the way we have finished today I think I am feeling proud and the credit goes to the players for the way they have played in the entire tournament. It shows the consistency and commitment of our performance that we have shown in this tournament. I am very happy and satisfied, it is also an important moment in history for Afghanistan because we have never played like this in the Asia Cup before.
