Afghanistan brace for historic Pakistan T20 Today


Afghanistan will get another boost as a fledgling cricketing nation when they play former world champions Pakistan for the first time in a Twenty20 international in Sharjah on Sunday 8 Dec 2013.

They received one-day status during their narrowly missed opportunity to qualify for the 2011 World Cup before progressing to two back-to-back World Twenty20 tournaments in 2010 and 2012, helping themselves to Associate membership of the International Cricket Council (ICC) this year.

The war-torn nation got a tremendous boost earlier this year when for the first time they qualified for the 50-over World Cup to be held in Australia and New Zealand in 2015.

Last month they once again lived up to their billing of one of the best Associate teams by qualifying for the World Twenty20 to be held in Bangladesh next year.

Afghanistan’s coach Kabir Khan said his team is hugely excited for Sunday’s game.
‘It will be a historic match for us,’ Kabir, told AFP.

‘Besides being historic, it will be a challenging match and if we do well then the world will take more notice.
