Afghanistan are playing a One-Day game against the Marylebone Cricket Club XI at Lord’s Cricket Ground on Tuesday. This will be the first time that Afghanistan cricketers will be playing at Lord’s. It makes the moment memorable for both the Afghanistan players and fans.
Afghanistan have just received their Test status and will be motivated to eke out a win against MCC. Asghar Stanikzai will lead his boys against MCC at Lord’s. Rashid Khan once again will be the key for Afghanistan.
MCC have a star-studded batting line-up with veterans such as Kumar Sangakkara, Misbah-ul-Haq, Younis Khan and they will be led by former New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum.
It will be a true test of character for Afghanistan and his boys. Can they make their Lord’s match memorable?
Stanikzai and his boys were visibly excited to play against MCC. Stanikzai took to Facebook to express his happiness and excitement at playing at the ‘Mecca of Cricket’.
Have a look at these interesting Facebook conversations between Stanikzai and his boys.
