Afghans rout MCC

Mumbai was the setting for some memorable scenes on Wednesday and there was another notable occasion today

Mumbai was the setting for some memorable scenes on Wednesday and there was another notable occasion today. Hafti Gulabid, a fast bowler from Jalalabad, claimed the prize wicket of Mike Gatting for a duck as an ">Afghanistan side won their first ever match against MCC. Gatting took it all in his stride.

"I got a decent ball. This isn't a game you just go out and play. If you don't have practice you don't do as well as you should."

    Fantastic. I'm thrilled. Now they should go on to play cricket with full member cricket teams often.

    Best wishes.....
