The streets of Kabul witnessed delirious celebrations as Afghanistan achieved a significant victory over Pakistan, in the ongoing ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023. This historic win, the first-ever One Day International (ODI) victory against Pakistan for the Afghan cricket team, ignited euphoria among Afghan fans. The celebration was so intense that it included fireworks and even celebratory gunshots, reflecting the significance of this achievement for the fans.
