    Alexander the Great's treasure found in Kabul

    This is pretty amazing:

    It lay hidden for 2000 years in Afghanistan, eluded the Taleban and escaped dozens of adventurers and bounty hunters. Now the Bactrian hoard, one of the world's greatest archaeological collections, has been found.

    Thats very interesting news...

    I wonder what will happen to it now, will it stay in Kabul or will it be taken to the west somewhere?

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.
