Michael Vaughan calls Afghanistan the ‘second best Asian team’

Former England captain Michael Vaughan has praised Afghanistan as the second-best team in Asia following their historic triumph over Australia in the Super 8 of the T20 World Cup.

On June 23, Afghanistan secured their first-ever victory against the 2021 T20 champions and six-time winners of the 50-over format, significantly boosting their chances of advancing to the semi-finals.

Vaughan commended Afghanistan’s talented players and the outstanding leadership shown by Rashid Khan. Afghanistan posted a formidable total of 148-6, powered by impressive half-centuries from Gurbaz and Zadran, setting the foundation for their triumph. Naveen-ul-Haq and Gulbadin Naib delivered exceptional bowling performances to seal the victory, with Naib earning the Player of the Match award.
