Afghanistan’s journey to the T20 World Cup semi-finals has been one of the feel-good stories of the tournament, with the Asian nation toppling the likes of New Zealand and Australia to qualify for the knockouts of an ICC event for the first time.

However, Afghan batter Najibullah Zadran couldn’t resist mocking star bowler Pat Cummins on social media after Australia was eliminated from the tournament.

Ahead of the T20 World Cup, Cummins was asked which nations he thought would qualify for the semi-finals, providing a diplomatic answer.

“Definitely Australia,” Cummins responded with a smile.

“And then can choose whichever three you want to.”

Less than two hours after Afghanistan’s victory over Bangladesh, Zadran decided the time was right to taunt Cummins on Twitter.

Afghanistan coach Jonathon Trott also took a swipe at South Africa’s infamous record in ICC knockouts ahead of Thursday’s semi-final.
