Considering the instability in Afghanistan, lack of resources, and little financial backing, the Afghan cricket team has shocked the world with how well they have played and how far they have come. Despite not being able to make it to the 2011 World Cup, they have beaten many well-known teams who have played in the World Cup in the past.
