New Delhi: Afghans in the World Cup (Afghanistan) There is a great deal of discussion about success. So is Bangladesh There is a thorn in the side of failure. When an event occurs for the first time, it can be called a non-event. But if that incident happens again and again, it cannot be called a non-happening. In the current World Cup, Afghans have shocked the cricketing world in every match. A team defeated three former world champions England, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka to keep their semi-final dreams alive. And that is Afghanistan. And the condition of Bangladesh in the World Cup, many people in the cricket world fear that Bangladesh cricket will not be lost soon! Bangladesh lost those Afghans in the World Cup. But Shakib didn’t see victory again. The Tigers have lost six games in a row. That’s why the former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag pierced Bangladesh this time. And senior wicket keeper batsman Dinesh Karthik too. What did they say?
Shakib Al Hasan lost two World Cup matches in Eden. On the other hand, the Afghans have been snatching one after another a breathless victory in the World Cup. In this context, Veeru wrote on social media site X, ‘Amazing Afghanistan, great performance. There is much to learn from them. Bangladesh have been playing cricket for almost 25 years but they haven’t been able to show consistent performances against big teams like the Afghan boys in such a short period of time. Afghanistan has improved the most in a short period of time. It must be accepted.’
Wow Afghanistan, what a performance. So much to learn from the spirit @ACBofficials have shown Bangladesh has been around for 25 years and they haven’t beaten the big teams in a row as often as the Afghan boys have done in a much shorter span of time. The most improved side in…

Like Veeru, Dinesh Karthik was also impressed with the performance of the Afghans. DK said on a sports website, ‘Afghans’ victory cannot be called an accident in any way. They have made great decisions from the start. They beat two great teams. The match against Sri Lanka was very close. They fought well. We saw this during the Asia Cup as well. But they could not implement the plan. But in the last two matches in the World Cup against Pakistan and Sri Lanka, the way they chased runs and won, in one word, is extraordinary.
Afghanistan has played 6 matches in this World Cup so far. 3 wins, 3 losses. Hasmatullah Shahidi’s point for Afghanistan is 6. The road to the semi-finals of the World Cup is still open for Rashid Khan-Rahmanullah Gurbaz.
