Afghanistan's head coach Jonathan Trott is not yet ready to agree to the media narrative conversation that Afghanistan has found the key to success when chasing a target on Indian soil. Trott's side registered their third consecutive victory in the ongoing World Cup on Friday. Afghanistan restricted the Netherlands to a low total of 179 runs. The Afghans successfully chased down the target in 31.3 overs, losing just three wickets. This is their third victory while chasing a total and now they are also one of the likely contenders for the knockout spot.

When asked about Afghanistan's recent success, Trott expressed caution about claiming they have completely mastered the game of cricket. He talked about the importance of confidence and capitalizing on opportunities.

"I'm very wary to say that you can crack anything regarding the game of cricket. As soon as you think you've cracked this game, it cracks you back, trust me. But I think we should be confident in everything we do, everything that we've done we should take with us, but also analyze the things and areas we need to work on. So today I thought our fielding was good, we improved on that and we got some good run-outs and we were presented with opportunities and we took them. And that's all you can do when you're fielding. Still things, other little areas to work on maybe with the bowling and with the batting as well but, you know, can't complain and I'm very, very proud of the boys in the change room," Trott said in the post-match conference.
