    Icon5 Afghanistan Hear After?

    So Afghanistan has achieved the greatest mile stone in whole cricketing history from 35th to 16th rank or may be 15th after Sunday's match will now play their first ever ODI against Scotland. Becoming the first Affiliate team to play a ODI & several tournaments lined up like WCL DIV 1, Intercontinental Cup, T20 WCQs, ACC T20 Elite, What do u think is the future for Afghan Cricket?
    Friends, I've started a group for all the WCL fans on facebook. So, who ever is interested pls join... Search "Non-Test Cricket Playing Nations!" in facebook. Thanks...

    I am baffled by the whole concept of Afghan cricket. Are these Afghan citizens based in Pakistan or does Afghanistan actually have a first class setup?

    This should give you a fair idea.

    Whatever it is, I think if there is one country that needs Cricket (and Sports in general) then it is Afghanistan. I hope they do well and give their countrymen something to be proud of and something to feel good about.

    Awesome news!!

    Will Afghanistan be staging any 'home' ODIs, if so where will they likely be played?

    Some great news happening from Afghanistan cricket.

    The best thing about the Afghanistan team is that nearly all the players are young (21-24 years), and I believe all bar one or two are born in Afghanistan. Upcoming cricketing nations need to be built on home-grown talent, not has-beens from other countries.

    Nothing unites a country together in harmony more than sport. I hope the people of Afghanistan jump on this opportunity.

    Pretty sure the Afghan football team play their home matches in UAE, so my guess is they will play their cricket matches their as well. Could have three sides playing home matches there; Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh.

    Afghanistan's team is almost as young as Bangladesh's, and with all the publicity they've raised cricket should have a pretty good profile over there now. It'd be great if Pakistan could help them out by giving their players some experience in FC cricket, or maybe getting them to take part in their List A competition, though I imagine the PCB has bigger things to worry about right now. Also hope they qualify for the the next T20 WC. Provided the political situation over there doesn't completely collapse, they could be pretty regular competitors with Ireland and Bangladesh in a few years.

    Sri Lanka, Pakistan and England are giving some of the Afghan players experience in FC matches. I know one of the D2 clubs have already said they will give their two overseas slots to Afghanistan players. Last year Hassan and Nabi and a few other clubs are keen to do the same.

    Yeah I just read that Hassan got his Visa accepted for England so that's good news for him.

    Also UAE as a host natjon, that's cool.

    The rise of the Afghans has been one of those wonderful stories that only cricket can produce - Having bemoaned the presence of associates at the World Cup in the past I'd now love to see the ICC change the rules to let another two in - by 2011 at their current rate of progress Afghanistan would undoubtedly ruffle a few feathers

    That is what you get for supporting and speaking for them for all those years...One Ray of Hope for joy and you get stabbed in the back. Keep supporting the terrorists and terrorist sympathizers. You reap what you sow. I have no sympathy for you, You deserve this.

    Now I wait for those educated and intelligent mute hypocrites to moan and complain about my post and how it insults their country and blah blah...

    Oh yeas thats why majority of the terrorist caught in Pakistan are Afghan origans and you talk about us making terrorist. The drugs and arms culture that developed in Pakistan was courtesy to your people.Pakistan , a third world country, allowed millions of these ungrateful into our country as refugees and all they do is create instability in the country in cooperation with other outside forces.

    BTW I really appreciate how you have supported us over here but the truth is I have no sympathy or support for Afghanistan and Afghani people who have caused more harm then good to Pakistan.
