Many nations are still looking for strategies to win the winner’s title of the ICC World Cup and ICC T20 World Cup. Afghanistan is one of the countries that have never won the single edition, dreams of winning the event.
Rashid Khan, the 21-years-old leg-spinner, says that the country’s people wish to see us playing the test matches and to be the full-time member of ICC. The latest dream is to win the World Cup.
The player believes that his colleagues have the potential to do so and only need to believe in themselves for the positive outcomes.
Rashid Khan: Afghanistan dreams of winning the World Cup
“The biggest dream of the whole country was to be called a Full Member team and to play a Test game. That was something which we were all hoping and praying for, the whole country, and we were not expecting that to happen as soon as it did. When you’re playing a Test game against India in India, it’s more than a dream for everyone,” he said on Indian spinner Ravichandran Ashwin’s Youtube show DRS.
“I think the biggest achievement [for Afghanistan] should be, right now, what the team is looking for, what the country is expecting is, to win the T20 World Cup, because we have all the skills, talent, and we just need to have that belief in ourselves that we can do it,” he added.
“Talent-wise, we are so good, we have the spinners, we have the fast bowlers, we have the batting skills as well. But what took us down in that Test was our experience against big teams, because we didn’t play enough cricket with them,” he maintained.
It will be the most significant achievement for them if they will win their maiden title.
