Afghanistan cricket is establishing itself as the new super power of the day. A few days ago they got the test status with Ireland. The main event of the World Cup also got a chance.

“The presence of international cricketers will make this tournament more popular,” Shukraullah said, “We are grateful to foreign cricketers. They are helping to take Afghanistan cricket to the next level. “
