If this loss is not a wake up call I don't know what is...it showed us how poor the team management was...how much we were lacking behind in preparation...showed us why we can't take AFG lightly anymore...they are here to stay


We should give credit where its due... But we must wake up and feel embarrassed!

Lets not start being pessimistic after this defeat. First of all we have absolutely no clue about the pitch, whether it becomes better by the day or worse.

Second, few of the main players were missing

3rd, the match was a close contest which clearly means that we werent totally outplayed

4th, afghan had players of ages around 20 as well. Which is kinda unfair

cricket is one thing that can unify afghanistan. all the warring factions are crazy about cricket. when afghanistan played their first ODI they got good luck messages from both the Taliban and the government.
Hopefully once the country stabilizes their cricket can develop normally and they do have alot of potential.
and afghan refugees who play in the team are not pakistani the team is 100% afghan. even though many of them learnt their cricket in pakistan

I think everyone should remember Bangladesh U-19 team once beat Australia U-19 to become plate round champions in the tournament(I dont remember the year,2003 or 04),Mushy's U-19 team also beat England in a home series and lost to England in U-19 world cup in Malaysia,so it's not really a big deal in my opinion. By the way this same U-19 team that lost to Afghanistan beat England U-19 in England.

So this is what it has come to from finding excuses for losing to India/Australia/England and now to Afghanistan.

First time i watched them up close-and an entire match. They seem to be more about attitude than skill. They have this aggressive, brave spirit which gives them a tough look. But skillwise they have a lot to improve on-in batting, bowling and fielding. Only classy player is this guy called Mohammad Nabi.

Their batsmen may not be technically correct. However, they are for sure much better power hitter than us. Mohammad Nabi can easily replace any of our middle order bastman in T20 & ODI.

We got everything too easy. Thus don't have the fight within us. DaFan is correct in his assumption.

Not surprised to see Afghanistan getting 70 all out. Their batsmen are aggressive but have poor technique and temperament. Still shows how they have a ways to go. It's good that they keep playing so they get practice.
