Wow. WOw. WOW!
Who knew? Not I. I think I had seen them once, last year, in some kind of T20 qualifier. I also happened to see their Under 19 team in the U19 Championship. But I never took them seriously.
Weren’t a British colony. So who taught them to play cricket and where can they play.
I happened to watch the highlights of Match 9, Zimbabwe vs Afghanistan Sunday night because I wanted to catch ALL the Zimbabwe games before the Super 10 matches started. I like Zimbabwe. They remind me of MY West Indies of the late 1970s and early 1980s. I was pretty sure that Zimbabwe would win, with overs to spare, and qualify.
Was I wrong. The Afghans sure know how to play T20. I am in awe. I will have to look up cricket in Afghanistan. I thought they would not have the time or the facilities.
Now we will see them a few more times playing the big boys and the West Indies girls.
My congratulations to Afghanistan. Well done. You played well. I will watch the whole match as soon as I get the time.
Thank YOU. That was quite the match.
