When asked to conjure an image of Afghanistan, many outside of the region would think of rugged dusty mountains, tribal chieftains and unfortunately, for so much of its recent history, the pounding backdrop of rocket and kalashnikov fire.

If we at Expat Sport were to suggest to you another image: a manicured wicket, the cheer of expectant crowds and the celebration of substantial cricketing success, you might be forgiven for seeming a little nonplussed.

In the two months since the cricketing world was rocked by the now infamous sandpaper ball-tampering scandal in Australia’s 3rd test against South Africa, much has changed in the cricketing world down under.

David Warner and Steve Smith are sitting out their bans - Warner reputedly turning to bricklaying to take his mind off his woes. While Cameron Bancroft, seen as the new-kid coerced into questionable behaviour by the bosses, has had his 9 month ban softened slightly and has now been cleared to play club cricket in Australia.
