Afghanistan smash T20I highest total: 278 for 3

Against Ireland. Hazratullah I think also broke the individual highest score with 162 not out. Impressive regardless of the strength of opposition.

Hammered 210 in the 3rd t20 as well, these guys are serious cricketers and they play to win.

Zimbabwe need to be on their game against an opening partnership of Mohammed Shazdad and Hazratullah Zazai

On a sporting deck the dual between those guys v Jarvis & Chatara will be interseting
1.G.Flower 2.B.Taylor 3.M.Goodwin 4.A.Flower 5.D.Houghton 6.N.Johnson 7.T.Taibu 8.P.Strang 9.H.Streak 10.R.Price 11.H.Olonga 12.A.Campbell

On the same pitches vs the same attack, couldn't once post 278 in a 50 over game. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Just shows you, they have not mastered the art of pure and actual batsmanship. If it weren't for their spinners, they would be in a big mess.

One of the signs of having arrived as a force in international cricket is when your have-beens start to appear for lesser nations. In the case of Izatulla Dawlatzai (last played for Afghanistan in 2015) it really is a lesser nation: I've only today become aware that he now plays for Germany. I see that my compatriots (not sure how many of the players really sport a German passport) have just done a treble Bluecher/Wellington show at Waterloo although Belgium's no Napoleon either.

We are ranked below Austria in the ICC T20 Rankings which is only acceptable in skiing.
