    Eoin Morgan (Winning Captain): It is my back. Roy tweaked his hammy as well. I have had a lot of back spasms as well in the past. It will be 24-48 hours before we get to know about Jason. We have had a really good day at the office. The bowlers stuck to plans and they created chances throughout the game. As a whole, we were brilliant. Root has been our glue. He looked phenomenal. He (Archer) is a pleasure to captain. He is not flustered in any situation. I think our plans have remained the same. The personnel have changed and it has been unfortunate to leave a few guys out. We have struggled against Afghanistan in the past and won't take them lightly.

    Jason Holder (Losing Captain): We didn't have enough runs on the board. We lost wickets at regular intervals. The toss was a bit crucial. We lost the game in the middle overs. Our batters needed to take more ownership. One or two careless shots. We needed to dig in deep and need to correct it. We didn't get the short balls high enough. Were a bit erratic as well. We are carrying a few niggles in the dressing room and need to get back fit ahead of the Bangladesh game. We need to tighten up in all three departments.

    Joe Root (Man of the Match 100*and 2/27): It is obviously nice to get the ton. It was a very good toss to win for us and it was important for us to take advantage of that. You pride yourself on as a batter for converting those starts into hundreds. It is just nice to get some time in powerplay. It is nice to have the fielders up and find the gap. There is not a massive difference in opening and batting at number 3. I just try to play the situation. It is good to have good players like Jonny, Roy, Morgan, Buttler and even Woakesy, the way he came out today and batted was fantastic. Really good team performance. We prepared indoors two days for the short-pitched stuff. You make sure you prepare for everything. It is nice that the hard work paid off. I have been trying differing skills with my bowling, it is still a work in the progress.
