Congratulations to Afganistan.
Good news on one hand since another competitor at our level. Bad news as they could be a potential threat to our number 9 position. They looked quite a strong performer in the ICC tournament.

all the teams in icc qualify tournament scored heavy which tells me balling was crap and the field was small.

nothing to be scared off... its not that we were never beaten by smaller teams...

at our level? please...

the afghans have won on talent alone, they still need to refine their skills. in 10 years they might be better than us, but right now we would smoke them like a gravity bong.

At least they are better than Bermuda.

Congrats the Afgans. I didn't think they could do it but they did it.

if we let Afghanistan have the better of us....then the terrorists win.

I wouldn't go as far as saying pwning them like gravity bong but rather like the good ol' old fashioned ghetto style hand carved potato bong...

meh.

I read about pre-Russian war Afghanistan in Saiyed Mujtaba Ali's book "Deshe Bideshe". It seemed like a lovely place. Although the dengarous mix of religion and violence has since changed the political demography radically. This ODI status may symbolize the rebirth of hope in a bleak society. May Allah guide them.

What are we scared of? They are a good team, but they were running on passion and heart, more so than out-skilling their opponents.

They played well yes, but I dunno how good those conditions were.

I was wondering, since Afganistan has been given ODI status, should'nt they compete in the Asia Cup? or the Asia Cup is strictly played by the 4 Asian Test playing teams, I remember the last time, UAE and Hong Kong played very well against the big teams. They should be given a chance.

They'll get their chance if they reach the finals of the ACC trophy.

The motto of progress should be own improvement, than getting scared of others and hindering other's progress. It will make things more competitive and we need to win the competition by taking ourselves to a better level.

when i first saw the title of this thread i thought you were talking about that if we beat afghanistan they were gonna bomb us or smth, thats why we should be scared.. in that case, we seriously should be, i even recommend not playing them..

but for the reason you suggested, i dont think we should be even close to scared, zimbabwe is scarier then AFG's (in cricket).. we should really start thinking about how to go past WI not thinking if afganisthan can go past us..

congrats to the afg's

We Should not be afraid, nor do we need to dismiss them as 'weak'.

we should play our best game no matter who the opponent is, if we want to become #1 in world cricket that is...

Play em as often as possible.

Afghanistan is a country that has gone to hell and back, and then to hell again. If their cricket team winning will bring some joy to the hearts of a bunch of people who've gone through some pretty tough times, then, well, speaking for myself I can stand the odd Tigers loss.

But play em. Send the transport bill to the CIA if you have to, but bring em out for one, three and four day games.Play em at the National Stadium, and play em in Syhelet. Invite them over next time Scotland or Zimbabwe or England or whoever is in country. Play em, and give them the opportunity to find if they can play cricket.

Looks like the congratulations is all they'll get.

Not a single match/visit offered yet by ANY test playing nation and not even an automatic qualification to the Asia Cup.

Good job by the ICC and the elitist boards on hindering the growth of cricket as much as possible.

well stated...BCB should host the afghans for a 3-match ODI series and also a couple of 4-dayers against our A team or Academy team or even our U19 team once their WC campaign is over.

absolutely dispicable, and coming from a Bangladeshi is equally shocking.

afghanistan should play in 2012 asia cup as they are most likely to qualify.

Sayed Ashraful is a fishy guy. He has his dark hand over Bangladesh cricket mo matter what Gov. is in power.

Sayed Ashraful is a fishy guy. He has his dark hand over Bangladesh cricket mo matter what Gov. is in power.

He has the largest contribution for our test status. He was the only Bangladeshi cricketer/cricket organizer to have some inetrnational connections, in those days. Bangladesh cricket has benefitted a lot through him and no need to talk against him, just because he is there for a long time. More over, his acceptance to all governments makes him more suitable for a higher position in BCB, because, it doesn't help to change all organizers with the change of government.

Off course, if you have any valid concern due to his presence, you might say. But not a sweeping remark, that why he is there during every government. What's your problem man, why should people be changed in BCB, because the government has changed? what's the relation? It still happens, I even oppose that much of linkage with government. There should be no effect on BCB for change of government..
