Afghanistan in Cricket World Cup 2011? Highly Likely!

A national cricket team from a rugged, war-torn, bombed to oblivion country of Afghanistan could very well be one of the competitors for the 2011 Cricket World Cup scheduled to be held in the subcontinent!

As recent as June 02, 2008, Team Afghanistan returned to a heroes welcome back in Kabul after winning the Division 5 final of the World Cricket League held in Britain. They won against home team Jersey in a dramatic two-wicket win in a match which forms part of the qualification pathway to the 2011 World Cup.

Afghanistan and Jersey now qualify for the fourth division of the World Cricket League, to be held in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, in October, putting the Afghan team one step closer to qualification for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011.

 

Further stages will follow in Argentina and the United Arab Emirates leading to the top four associate or affiliate teams in the world booking their places at the World Cup to be staged in Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Those four will join the 10 full members to decide the top one-day side in the world.

    People are afraid of Afghani players as they think that those belong to TALIBAN!!!
    I’ve heard that they have got some great tall fast bowlers.

    until today i thought that afghans were the old afghans with no enthusiasum to sport. after finding websites that displayed the new afghans, my eyes have been reopened to the new generation of afghan people. i an very impressed by all the teams of afghanistan but am mostly inpressed by the afghan Cricket team and i would love to see Afghanistan qualify for the 2011 criket world cup and i think that they would have a very good chance. i am mostly impressed at how afghanistan is moving on as a country and rebuilding afghanistan once again or create a new afghanistan. well done……..wish the afghan criket team all the best.

    For Afghanistan to qualify to the next stage, tomorrow’s match will be crusial against papau new genei, if they can win that match and then score near 300 runs in either one of their remaining matches, this could boost their run rate and take Afghans to the final qaulification stage in April. I must say Uganda’s victory was quite a surprise to me lets hope it taught the guys an important lesson, not to take any team for granted,,

    Somebody essentially lend a hand to make severely posts I’d state. That is the very first time I frequented your web page and so far? I surprised with the research you made to make this actual post extraordinary. Great activity!
