The Afghanistan coach Rashid Latif hopes that his team doesn’t go Kenya’s way. Kenya had also taken giant strides in terms of rising in international cricket. They had even reached the semi final round in the 2003 World Cup, but, after that, they faded and today, they don’t even have the right to play One Day matches at the international level. Latif doesn’t want the same thing to happen with Afghanistan as well.
Just about 6 years ago, Afghanistan was one of the 5th division teams. No one would have expected them to develop so quickly to make it to the World Cup 2015, but, they did that and in the recently concluded Asia Cup, they showed that they can even create upsets in Australia and New Zealand next year.
