My Letters - THE NATIONAL - Joy for Afghanistan, heartbreak for UAE
My congratulations to the UAE Cricket team for their impressive performance at the Twenty 20 qualifier matches. The last two matches, i.e against Ireland and Afghanistan have been painful for the nations progress towards the journey to West Indies. However, the tournament has been an inspiring one for all the young aspiring members of ICC. I am sure, UAE team will take this experience along with them for their place in other big tournaments coming up.
For Afghanistan, well done and this is a gift to the nation and it's ordirnary citizen who are fighting a two pronged battle - on one side the terrorist and on the other side the peace keepers. They need a deserving ocassion and venue to cheer on something, and what more than their entry into world cricket.
