In April, Matthew Fleming headed to Afghanistan to open cricket pitches and spread the good name of MCC - and, indeed, the sport - among rural communities in the country.

    Spectacular video, really the spirit of cricket....Cricket should be promoted in Afghanistan. They have done a great job in qualifiers.

    Nice video,but the way Afghan team is playing(beating both Ireland and Scotland in WCQ),it will be not too far before India plays Afghanistan.Cricket is fulfilling what football has done to Iraq.
