Afghanistan's lungi dance following their victory against Pakistan

Afghanistan's players on the pitch and in the locker room have been celebrating nonstop since their first-ever win against Pakistan in World Cup 2023.

Afghanistan's Victory Dance

Afghanistan players expressed appreciation to the large audience who gathered at Chennai's MA Chidambaram Stadium to witness history as the passionate nation upstaged their experienced neighbors and long-standing adversary Pakistan in the ICC World Cup 2023.

The players, headed by captain Hashmatullah Shahidi and Afghan spin king Rashid Khan, took a lap of honour at the historic arena, where they were greeted with love and support from the spectators inside.

Many of them were Indians, joined by Afghan national leaders, who roared during the players' lap and reveled in their uplifting glory on the cricket field after suffering excruciating agony and ecstasy in earlier defeats against this opponent.

The 'Lungi Dance'

Another video of players dancing to the renowned Bollywood song 'Lungi Dance' has gone viral on social media as the celebrations continue. Rashid Khan and his colleagues can be seen dancing aboard the team bus in the video.

Afghanistan vs Pakistan

Afghanistan defeated the reigning champions England on October 15 to earn their second unexpected victory of the competition. Afghanistan now has optimism in their continued World Cup campaign after this victory. The team coached by Hashmatullah Shahidi has already won two of its five games, and they still have a chance to go to the semifinals.

Pakistan, who has suffered three straight losses in the competition and only two victories from the same number of games, still has a chance to go to the semi-finals.

Regarding Afghanistan's performance in the game, they had to chase down a 283-run goal. Rahmanullah Gurbaz (65) and Ibrahim Zadran (87), two Afghan batters who embraced the challenge, both scored half century, contributed to the team's outstanding achievement.

Rahmat Shah scores another half century (77*) after the first wicket is lost, and Hashmatullah Shahidi follows with a 48-run innings. At the Chepauk Stadium yesterday, their partnership helped the team to an eight-wicket victory (with six balls remaining) over Pakistan.
