Afghanistan still want it

You can't not want them to make it through to the World Cup. Their coach Kabir Khan speaks of his faith in the team:

"I have always had faith in my batsmen, who have learnt quickly after seeing those from other countries play an innings under pressure. It was no fluke that we got this far."

It isn't. They've proven themselves in the World Cup Qualifiers these past few weeks. If an extraordinary sequence of results go their way, they'll be going to the 2011 World Cup. But before that, they need to win their last match against Namibia, and opener Karim Sadiq is hopeful of assisting his side in getting there:

"I hope to score a century on Friday and give my country a big chance of getting to the World Cup."

A century for the team.
