Speaking about the defeat against Afghanistan, Marsh said that they were outplayed by the Afghans. "They got 20 too many. And to be honest, they played a really good game of cricket. We were outplayed tonight," Marsh said.

"We did think about it. A lot of teams have bowled first at this World Cup to get an idea of the surface. Don't think we lost at the toss. It was an off-night for us in the field, and we own that. We'll be back next game. It wasn't an easy wicket, but both teams played on this surface," Marsh concluded.
