World Cricket League

Afghanistan back on track

Martin Williamson

After an opening-day defeat, Afghanistan put themselves back in contention with a 13-run win over much-fancied Hong Kong at Belgrano on the second day of the ICC World Cricket League Division 3. The match went to the wire thanks to Hong Kong's late-order batting, with 98 added for the last two wickets.

Executive editor Martin Williamson joined the Wisden website in its planning stages in 2001 after failing to make his millions in the internet boom when managing editor of Sportal. Before that he was in charge of Sky Sports Online and helped launch and run Sky News Online. With a preference for all things old (except his wife and children), he has recently confounded colleagues by displaying an uncharacteristic fondness for Twenty20 cricket. His enthusiasm for the game is sadly not matched by his ability, but he remains convinced that he might be a late developer and perseveres in the hope of an England call-up with his middle-order batting and non-spinning offbreaks. He is now managing editor of ESPN EMEA Digital Group as well as his Cricinfo responsibilities.
