Afghanistan‘s players were on cloud nine following their historic victory over Australia in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024. This triumph was particularly significant as it marked Afghanistan’s first-ever win against the formidable Australian team in international cricket. The Rashid Khan-led squad managed to secure a 21-run victory, a feat that not only boosts their morale but also underscores their growing prowess in the cricketing world.

How Afghanistan got the better of Aussies

The match against Australia was a masterclass in strategic play on a challenging batting surface. Afghanistan posted a total of 148/6, a score that seemed modest but proved to be defendable thanks to their exceptional bowling performance. The Afghan bowlers, capitalizing on the tricky pitch, used slower deliveries to great effect, making it difficult for the Australian batters to score freely. The Australians were unable to chase down the target, succumbing to Afghanistan’s disciplined and tactical bowling attack. This victory was a testament to Afghanistan’s strategic acumen and ability to perform under pressure.

Afghan players celebrate the win by dancing on Dwayne Bravo’s song

The celebration of this landmark victory was as vibrant as the win itself. The Afghan players, reveling in their success, danced to their bowling coach Dwayne Bravo’s iconic song ‘Champion’. A video shared on social media showed the players on the team bus, joyously dancing and performing the hook-step of the song, which has become a favorite among cricket fans. This jubilant celebration not only highlighted their happiness but also showcased the camaraderie and unity within the team, with Bravo’s song providing the perfect soundtrack for their moment of triumph.
