But one incident which happened yesterday was so weird. This was something unusual. When you hear about it; you will really wonder if Cricket is still a gentleman’s game.

It was Match No. 21 of the ICC Cricket World Cup. Afghanistan’s captain tried to pull Eoin Morgan to get him run out. That’s true. This incident was captured in the video. But as the saying goes, luck favors the brave and it did; captain couldn’t get Eoin run out. He safely crossed the crease. To save himself from embarrassment, Afghanistan Captain Gulbadin Naib laughed and picked up the bat and returned it to Eoin. Watch the video here:

Even, Naib said this to media, “We missed a catch of Morgan, and we lost the match there only”.

No doubt, England is amongst the top contenders of the World Cup.

Naib further added, “They didn’t give us any chance in the match. They played so well. And, Eoin is one of the best players. His batting skills are so good”.

Though Afghanistan couldn’t win yesterday’s match but they played really well. They scored 247 and batted out full 50 over for the first time. This was really a big achievement for them. Nab himself said that their team is improving every day. It’s good that they played for the whole 50 over, it’s a good sign.
