The Afghanistan cricket team deserved a warm welcome and they did get on. First, at the airport, there were hundred of people witnessed present to receive their national heroes and later in the main event the number grew to thousands.
At the airport, the traditional drums were beaten and the Afghans were seen dancing their traditional and cultural dance. Keep in mind that Afghanistan did not win anything except one game in the World T20 and still the fans were happy.
At the main event, there were thousands of people present and they were chanting the names of their heroes. The Afgan team was present and sitting in the middle. Shahzad the opening batsman and wicket-keeper were seen making some moves which he learnt from Chris Gayle.
These were some special scene in Afghanistan. The country loves their cricket and this shows how much they admire win. Afghanistan remains the only team that has defeated the West Indians in the main round. Rest were all thrashed by the men from the Caribbean.
Afghanistan defended a small total against the mighty batting line of West Indies. Afghanistan bowled well and they caught everything which finally put them on the front seat at the end of the match. They also had a pretty close one against the South Africans as well.
Afghanistan remained unbeaten in the qualifiers and in the main round they showed some strong signs of improvement in their batting and bowling. Afghanistan in the presence of Inzamam as their head coach has definitely worked out on a lot of things and their performances are showing that within a few years they will surely become a very side in international cricket.
