England all-rounder Luke Wright press conference after their T20 World Cup match against Afghanistan in Pallekele.

 

Wright, who became the highest individual scorer for England in World T20 surpassing Kevin Peitersen's 79, said he always wanted to prove that he was a better player.

 

"Yeah, it was a bit of a special evening, I was desperate to play well and win games for England so it's special to be man of the match," he said.

 

"We tried to hang around and see what we could get early on. As I've got older I've gone away and tried to work on my game and prove that I'm a better player.

 

"The amount of guys I've seen have time away from England, like Ian Bell, and come back a better players, talking to other coaches and players about how I could improve," he added.

 

Wright said he wants to bowl more to contribute to his team's cause.

 

"I want to bowl more, I've been used a bit of a one-over specialist. It's something that came from my knee injury but I'll keep working on it," he said.
