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.
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.
