I hope these guys do well!

Skipper Mohammad Nabi’s Afghanistan squad does not want to leave Guangzhou without a medal, and is hopeful of achieving something that would have been unthinkable when the decision was made to add cricket to the Asian Games sports program.

Their Pakistani coach, former test wicketkeeper Rashid Latif, expects his players will be holding bouquets in their hands at the victory podium in this Chinese city of flowers at the Guanggong Cricket Stadium next Friday.

“We are here to cause an upset,” Latif told The Associated Press on Sunday. “A medal is on our radar – you never know, it could be even gold.”
