News: MCC recruits 2 Afghans for their cricket team

This is a slightly strange piece of news. MCC usually recruits European cricketers, either retired Englishmen or sometimes talented players from the 4 neighbouring countries. Good for Afghanistan that 2 of their players will get this benefit. I guess the massive thrashing they gave the MCC caused the recruiting.

I am not all that surprised, because as far as I have read, there are like 1 million cricketers in afghanistan. They didnt have a ground, which they are now working on, and they didnt have an academy that they have just opened up.

But one has to take things into perspective. First of all, all South Asian countries get cricket on their television sets all day. That is why all of Nepal, Afghanistan, Bhutan and Maldives are so much interested in the game. Secondly, 4 million afghans lived in Pakistan for 20 years and only returned to native land 3-4 years back.
