Afghanistan have qualified for World Cup 2015. They came through a 14-match Pepsi ICC World Cricket League campaign over 27 months to claim second place in the event from the last match of the competition and secure automatic qualification to the next World Cup in Australia. “We have waited 8 years for this, I have dreamed every day of my career for this day,” said Afghanistan’s match-winning captain Mohammad Nabi. News of the hard-fought victory against Kenya in front of 5000 fervent fans at Sharjah Stadium sparked celebrations across the country, with President Hamid Karzai personally congratulating the players by telephone.
