Afghanistan beat Australia by 21 runs Rashid Khan said- I will not be able to sleep tonight

New Delhi. Afghanistan has made a big upset by defeating Australia in the T20 World Cup. The Afghan team led by Rashid Khan defeated Australia by 21 runs in their second match of the Super 8 played in Kingston. With this win, Afghanistan has kept itself in the race for the semi-finals. After the victory against former champion Australia, Rashid Khan said that even if he stays up all night today out of happiness, he will not complain about it. Rashid recalled last year's ODI World Cup 2023 when Glenn Maxwell snatched victory from his team by scoring a double century. After that defeat, Rashid could not sleep all night in Mumbai.

Afghanistan has kept its hopes alive of reaching the semi-finals by defeating Australia (AUS vs AFG) by 21 runs in the Super Eight stage match. With this win, the team will try to leave behind the bitter memories of Mumbai. In the ODI World Cup 2023 in November, Australia achieved the target of 292 runs for victory by losing seven wickets for 91 runs. In this match, despite being injured, Maxwell played a brilliant innings of 201 not out off 128 balls with the help of 21 fours and 10 sixes.

“I won't be able to sleep today because of happiness”
Rashid Khan said after the upset in the T20 World Cup, 'I think I will be able to sleep well now. I could not sleep well that night. The memories of that match will always be in our mind. Obviously, I could not sleep the whole night that (7 November 2023). It seems that the same will happen today. I will not be able to sleep today due to happiness. Today the whole team is happy. ' He said that the people of the war-torn country will get a chance to celebrate with victory. After Afghanistan's first win over Australia in any format of international cricket, Rashid said, 'This is a big victory for us as a team, as a nation. It is not just like a bilateral game. This is a World Cup match and of course in the World Cup you are defeating the best team. This is a big achievement. His team is the winner of the 2021 World Cup. '

Rashid Khan considered the win over Australia a big victory
Rashid Khan said, 'Defeating such a team always gives you a lot of energy and doesn't even let you sleep. I have said earlier that cricket is the only way to bring smiles on people's faces in Afghanistan. People there can celebrate it. I think we are very lucky that we are giving this happiness to people here at home. We rarely see such events at home where they can celebrate and enjoy those moments. This is something that really satisfies me.'

Afghanistan has a chance to reach the semi-finals
If the Indian team defeats Australia by a big margin in its next match, then Afghanistan will have a chance to reach the semi-finals. Afghanistan's team will face Bangladesh in its last Super 8 match. So far, all four teams of this group are in the race for the semi-finals. However, Bangladesh will hope for a miracle.
