    Pretty sure their board is legit. It operates out of Kabul, so must be for the most part Afghani, you'd think.

    Can't wait to exclude them from my statsguru search in arguments for the next 15 years.

    Congrats though!

    Fantastic news!

    And to everyone worrying about the stats etc., you may have a point, but unless we grow the game (more Test sides, a bigger World Cup) the game we all love will be reduced to T20 comps in a handful of countries by 2040.

    Money means there's a good chance of that happening anyway. And it will suck.

    Think Afghanistan will give us a run and might win a test or two in our home soil. We should invite them asap since next match is scheduled late august. Its a great opportunity.

    "Kabul" and "legit" should only appear in the same sentence if one of the other words is "ain't".

    Apart from a chance for Ire and Afg to blood some youngsters, no, not really.

    New Zealand have some pretty big off season gaps over the next couple of years. Wonder if they'll line up some games...

    If they do play in Kabul, would it be considered offensive to use terms like

    all the teams that have big gaps (NZ, bang, WI, SA, SL etc) should give them a game imo. might not be glamorous but it's some test cricket and as a fan more is always welcome
