Since the middle of the 19th century, Afghanistan has been playing cricket but their game came into the limelight just a few years ago.
Cricket news: Afghanistan are hopeful of a good performance in the World Cup after their exceptional performance in the Asia Cup
Since getting the status of an ODI team from the ICC in 2011, their playing standards have improved dramatically and now they can give a tough fight to any team in the world.
Their recent performance in the Asia Cup tells the story of their beautiful journey where a little luck would have placed them into the finals of the tournament.
It will be a proud moment for the country when they participate in the high profile 2019 World Cup. This will be their first time in the mega tournament and they deserve every bit of it as they were the champions of the ICC World Cup Qualifiers 2018.
So here we look into three teams against which Afghanistan can put up a tough fight and can eventually turn out victorious.
The state of the current Windies cricket team is not at all good as most of their big players are rejecting the contract of the board and are preferring to play in to the T20 leagues all around the world.
However the management have persisted in finding new young talent but most of them have failed to perform on a daily consistent basis.
The Windies lost the final of the World Cup Qualifier against the Afghans and the side led by Asghar Afghan would again look for a win when they meet the Windies in the World Cup.
