‘Do not disrespect Afghanistan by calling this an upset’: Wasim Jaffer after Rashid Khan’s men register a historic win over Australia | Cricket News



NEW DELHI: Afghanistan secured a historic win over Australia, with a standout performance leading to a 21-run victory in a T20 World Cup Super Eight match in St Vincent.
Former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer praised the Afghan team, emphasizing that calling their triumph a fluke would be disrespectful.

Gulbadin Naib‘s four-wicket haul was crucial in this significant upset, as Afghanistan outplayed the Baggy Greens to clinch their maiden T20I win over Australia.

It was a memorable night for both Afghanistan’s players and their fans. The surprise was evident in Afghanistan’s dugout when Naveen-ul-Haq dismissed Ashton Agar, moving the team closer to this landmark victory. Gulbadin Naib’s exceptional four-over spell played a major role in guiding the team towards this impressive feat.
“Do not disrespect Afghanistan by calling this an upset. Afg are good enough to beat any team on their day. They played to their potential today and defeated a very good Aus team. A fact that should be celebrated. Congratulations and well-played @ACBofficials #AUSvAFG,” Jaffer wrote on X.

Chasing a target of 149, Australia found themselves in a difficult position despite Glenn Maxwell‘s efforts. Maxwell had scored 59 runs off 41 deliveries, featuring six boundaries and three sixes. His performance brought Australia close to the target, but after his dismissal, the team struggled to recover. Eventually, Australia was bowled out for 127, sealing their defeat.
This loss puts Australia in a challenging situation, needing a win against unbeaten India on Monday to secure a spot in the final four.
