Afghanistan to qualify for semifinal of T20 World Cup 2024? Here’s what captain Rashid Khan has to say

Afghanistan will start their T20 World Cup campaign on June 4 against the debutants Uganda at the Providence Stadium in Guyana. Ahead of the encounter, captain Rashid Khan exuded immense confidence in the team’s ability. Afghanistan performed exceptionally well in the ODI World Cup last year beating teams like England, Sri Lanka and Pakistan and had Australia on the brink before Glenn Maxwell played a special knock.

No wonder, Rashid and his men are being touted to make it to the semifinals this time around by some of the experts. The skipper is delighted to know it but wants his team to focus on the game at the moment and also recalled that they were only one game away from making it to last four at the World Cup last year. “Yeah, a few people have mentioned Afghanistan is going to be there for semis.

“We take that as a very positive sign. Earlier, it used to be hard for us to even qualify. And now to be nominated to be there in the top four, I think it’s a big thing for us. But we don’t look at those things a lot. It’s all about how we’re going to be there on the ground, delivering. We were very nearly in the last [ODI] World Cup semis as well.
