Afghans and Kiwis

I have just read this story in the NZ Herald about how Afghanistan, one of the Associates who are fast improving, want to play a variety of established cricketing nations including New Zealand.

Given the Kiwis propensity to flee at the slightest hint of danger to their team (remember the 2003 World Cup), I couldn't resist having a dig when I read the following quote from Afghanistan national coach Taj Malik:

"We are sure if we do not beat them, we can fight them."

Apologies for the terrible drawing (ignore the scribbles in the top right - they are Kennedy Obuya's scores so far this season for Caboolture).

First off, let me congratulate you on an excellent blog.

I read that story too and couldn't help feeling the Kiwis felt a little threatened.

That said, Afghanistan is coming on nicely. Now two of their bowlers are going to be seen in the county circuit.
