Afghanistan has etched a historic chapter in the annals of the ICC World Cup 2023. After a surprising upset against England, they achieved another remarkable milestone by securing their first-ever ODI victory over Pakistan.

This resounding eight-wicket triumph was a powerful statement made by the Afghan cricket team, a nation that has had complex political relations with Pakistan. The match turned out to be a one-sided affair, with Afghanistan in full control. While chasing a target of 283, their openers set the stage with an impressive 130-run partnership, leaving the Pakistani bowlers bewildered.

After the openers departed, Rahmat Shah and Hashmatullah Shahidi efficiently steered Afghanistan to victory within just 49 overs.

Former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir made a bold prediction about Afghanistan’s future in the cricketing world. He believes that Afghanistan is on track to become the second most formidable team in the subcontinent, surpassing the likes of Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Pakistan. Gambhir’s optimism is fueled by the extraordinary talent within the Afghan cricket team, which he anticipates will continue to shine on the global stage.
