The cricket world applauded Afghanistan on Twitter after their Asia Cup campaign ended in a thrilling tie with India.
Afghanistan were so close to winning all five matches they played. Whoever wins this Asia cup, it will be remembered more for Afghanistan's exploits. .#AsiaCup— Sanjay Manjrekar (@sanjaymanjrekar) September 25, 2018

What a disappointment that Afghanistan are not in the finals of this tournament. Fair to say the two best sides of this tournament competed hard and gave us all a nail bitting thriller. #INDvAFG— Hemang Badani (@hemangkbadani) September 25, 2018
