Afghanistan national cricket team is one of the recent entries in the world cricket scene and quite a later arrival in the ICC World Cup. Interestingly cricket had been a familiar phenomenon in Afghanistan from middle of 19th Century but the national cricket team gained prominence in the last few years. The Afghanistan Cricket Board was formed in 1995 and became an affiliate member of the International Cricket Council (ICC) in 2001 and a member of the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) in 2003
The present Afghan national ODI cricket team is led by Asghar Afghan / Rashid Khan. Former Windies cricketer Phil Simmons has been entrusted with the coaching responsibilities of the squad.
The Afghan national cricket team had played only one World Cup matches till date. From 1975 to 1999, the team were not eligible to participate in the World Cup tournaments for not being a membership of International Cricket Council. Albeit the team were granted ICC membership in 2001, the team could not participate in qualifying matches in 2003 since they were not the members of ICC during the time of the qualifying games. The Afghan did however participate in 2007 & 2011 World Cup qualifying matches but unfortunately could not succeed. In 2015 World Cup they played their first world cup and in that debut world cup tournament team only win the 1 games from the six matches they played so they out from the competition from the group stage.
For 2019 cricket world cup Afghanistan team will be qualify and one of ten teams who participate in the competition. Currently Afghan team showing good performance in the recent couple matches so team surely want a good shows in the ICC world cup 2019 events.
