Default Impressed with Afghanistan

Brilliant effort by the Afghans. They gave Bangladesh a mighty scare at tigers own home, in this 1st ODI of 3 ODI. But Tigers held the nerve and quality of BD Tigers showed in the end. Well played to Afg.

BD won last 4 ODI series at home with such ease, comfortably against India Pakistan SA and Zim. At last some challenge and it came from the Afghans.


I see a bright future for Afghanistan, the way the two batsmen batted showed so much maturity and calm even though they both were relatively new comers. And their bowling has a good mix, and they are led by an experienced player by their standards.

With more games under their belt, more they play more they will learn and know the how-it-needed to win against top 8 ODI sides.

this only the first match, if all the 3 matches are like these than you can suggest the bold part. IND won the 3rd odi easily and SA won the 1st ODI very easily in those series

READ carefully. It states, 'Bangladesh won the last 4 series with ease and comfortably'. 'Series' is the key word. Not last many 'Matches'

Afg BEEN impressive for sometime now. I have zero clue how their bench is, but they have such a solid starting unit.

And that Shahzad is a firecracker! I don't mind his flair one bit! It's what the game needs!

Their under-19 system needs some polishing.

Rashid Khan played in the U-19WC earlier this year and he's reported to be 25

We're very rusty after a yr break. We've been a pretty balanced side since the beginning of the World cup - today we sucked in all 3 departments and still pulled out a win. They seem to have talent but looking at their record they seem to lack consistency. Let's see how they do in the next two matches. I'll reserve my judgement until then.

Their bowling other than Rashid and Nabi was not world class to say the least, it's just that the pitch was very slow and our batsmen mistimed many many shots.

Batting for the most part was very impressive.

Their fielding was ok.

Definitely their bowling has to improve and fielding needs big improvements. Young team like this should be more agile in the field.

Time, with more experience and good coaching they will learn.

I felt that they have a better bowling attack than us. Fielding was utterly poor but Nabi, Rashid Khan, Dawlat were good.

I would trade 3 of our decent SLAs for Rashid Khan

Very well planed. Fielding is an issue. They could challenge the establishment.

Afghanistan are historically poor batting wise. They only crossed 200 once in the world cup on the FLATTEST wickets any world cup has seen. Even against Zimbabwe and Ireland's poor bowling they struggled to score 250 and collapsed even when they did.

That being said, the newer generation have some talent. They will always be fine bowling wise, with both pace and spin. Rahmat, Shahidi, Ghani, Ahmadi, and others will take their cricket forward.

They are already a notch above Ireland and Zimbabwe. They are the new Bangladesh.

It would be a massive injustice if Ireland defeat or draw against Afghanistan in the Intercontinental cup,Ireland on the way down in a big way.
The old players are just not firing anymore.

Don't think it matters much. Both Afghanistan and Ireland are scheduled to get test status in 2019 as per Tim Wigmore.

We'll see about that one.
I'm an Irish fan but they are on the way down.
Lets see how these aging torrents do against Afghanistan in India.
John Bracewell has failed,bring back Phil Simmons,they play for him but not for John.

They are very brave and confident. And this by itself is enough to beat us in most sports. Their progress in football is simply amazing.

I reckon they ll go far in cricket too, they just need more support from ICC.

^ If you are talking about soccer/football, lots of Afghan players play in the lower German leagues because they went there at a very young age as refugees. But they still retain their Afghan citizenship. Hence they are able to come back to the national team with experience that few other South Asian players have.

I followed last year's SAFF Cup very closely actually. It's amazing how India was able to beat Afghanistan in the final, when Afghanistan had the the best individual players across the board. Kudos to India for their strategy.

Well done and Congrats to Afghanistan. May your cricket grow from here, strength to strength. Certainly I can see Afghanistan taking over Pakistan in ODI's!

Our players gave themselves lots of excuse after the last match for being rusty, forgetting half the Afghan players joined the team after Hajj.

National holiday in Afghanistan. Well done! Throughout deserved to win.

BD No excuse what's so ever. Batted like amateurs never looked completely comfortable against spin.
