Reviewed 5 weeks ago What a place! Date of visit: May Reviewed 5 weeks ago Really gone downhill. Infrastructure is mostly pathetic, except in the cities. Warlords and militants have kept a civil war simmering. The economy is heavily dependent on international assistance and remittance from expatriates.
Amid the gloom, cricket sprouted after it was transplanted from the refugee camps of Peshawar to the dusty fields of Kabul. But a national team could be formed only in after the Taliban lifted its ban on cricket. The game blossomed in the shadow of the gun. Pakistan, Sri Lanka and India too chipped in. The Indian cricket board helped build stadiums in Kandahar and Mazar-e-Sharif in Afghanistan, besides providing training facilities at Greater Noida and Dehradun in India.
After 18 years of international cricket, Afghanistan secured Test status in June The country is now the 12th Test cricket-playing full member, and is ranked seventh in the T20 format and 10th in ODI. Afghanistan is a mosaic of ethnic groups. Cricket has become the glue that binds these groups, allowing them to take pride in their country.
Afghan singing sensation Aryana Sayeed is an avid supporter. The Taliban and other ethnic groups have voiced their backing. Cricketers are indeed the pride of Afghanistan. From refugee camps to the global spotlight, the Afghan cricket journey has been incredible. A triumph in the face of adversity. Dubai: They come from all walks of life, their imagination and motivation fired up in a myriad ways. One is a true Afghan soldier — having batted at almost all positions from opener to number nine, having bowled his medium pace and having not bowled at all, and then being handed the team captaincy six weeks before the World Cup.
And when they salute the national anthem at the beginning of every match this World Cup, the crowd expects an arduous battle, a great game and perhaps a shock victory for the brave boys from Afghanistan. Here are five tales of courage, valour and determination against the odds.
They will tell you why. The youngest and the fastest cricketer to spin his way to wickets, Rashid Khan started his journey with a slingshot. Khan has also played a major role in changing the global perception of Afghanistan as a hub of terror and drug cartels. His is a country that now is among the strongest fighters in world cricket. For they could afford to rent their own house in Peshawar when they migrated — and that made a world of difference to Khan.
Nangarhar, Jalalabad, Peshawar and Kabul — life passed by in one mad scramble. Confined to the courtyard because outdoors were not safe, the rules were simple — if you bowl fast it must be a plastic ball; the brothers batted in order of their age; play could go on for hours, and play was allowed indoors with slippers as the bat.

From those nomadic days to now, when T20 teams scramble for his attention and no league is complete without him, Khan is among the foremost faces of hope and achievement amid war and displacement. Mujeeb, 19, is still quite an aberration in Afghan cricket. He was neither born in Pakistan nor does he speak Urdu. And he started learning cricket in The self-taught Mujeeb watched hours and hours of bowling on YouTube and practiced them until his fingers bled.
He watched a lot of Ravichandran Ashwin and become a life-long fan. He started bowling with the taped tennis ball in the streets. It also helped that his uncle is one of the founding fathers of cricket in Afghanistan, Noor Ali Zadran. Two months after his international debut, at the age of 16 years and days, he became the youngest player to take a five-wicket haul in a One Day International match.
Mujeeb had arrived on the global stage. When Mujeeb was playing the Under World Cup, someone was watching him very closely. Someone who was impressed with his wrong'un and the action. That man was Ravichandran Ashwin. Born in Puli Alam in Logar province of Afghanistan, the current captain of the one-day cricket team made his debut for Afghanistan against Japan in the World Cricket League.
He is among the rare breed of Afghan cricketers who have had an undefined role within the team for a long time. He has batted as an opener and also as number nine in the batting order. He has bowled as an opener and in the death overs.

In the documentary, Naib is shown body-building in a Kabul gym. Even now, every time he gets a wicket, the stocky and muscular Naib puts his biceps on full public display. Like millions of Afghans born during a time of strife and war, January 1 became a symbolic date of birth for him. In any case, his family moved to Peshawar — fleeing from the Soviet—Afghan War — where he started playing cricket at the age of Still, there were no proper cricket pitches, nor enough cricket gear. Nabi would help out his future teammates with money to buy cricket gear — at least whatever he could afford.
His playmates included Mohammad Shahzad, Asghar Afghan and Shapoor Zadran — all of whom would become key members of the national team at various times. He was one of the cricketers to play in Afghanistan's first ever Test match, against India, in June And he also holds the record for scoring runs in aggregate without a six in one-days — his first six came against Ireland earlier this year! As one of the members of the Afghan team who have lived in refugee camps in the border areas of Khyber and the North Western border of Pakistan — places where living conditions are deplorable and terrorism is a way of life — Shahidi still picked the bat and ball and floored everyone with his talent.
At his place of employment, he is given the news that because he has the least seniority, he is being laid off. He considers shooting his supervisor before walking outside to the building's plaza during lunchtime, making mock shooting motions at random bystanders with the gun. They are alarmed and call the police. When the police arrive, he throws the gun through the open window of a parked car before he is arrested.
Two women get in the car, driving it to a car wash where an employee, Ignacio, discovers the gun under the front seat while vacuuming the interior. He takes it to his home in the barrio , where his brother and his pregnant wife both object to its presence. One day, the gun and his elderly father both go missing. They search and finally realize that after the recent death of his best friend, the father is depressed and considering suicide at the grave of his late wife.
Dining at The Gun
After stopping him, Ignacio throws the gun and bullets into a dumpster. A nearby worker sees the action, retrieves the gun and sells it to an illicit gun dealer. The gun dealer sells the gun to a man who supplies criminals. The duo the pistol is intended for is planning to rob a porn theater's box office receipts, but their third member had second thoughts and backed out. After much wheedling, he agrees to be their lookout and getaway driver , keeping the pistol in his lap.
At the theater, the owner recognizes the younger man in the duo as a former employee despite a ski mask.
