Video - Afghanistan Players React To World Cup Qualification

Watch as Afghanistan players Hamid Hassan and Mohammad Nabi as well as coach Kabir Khan give their reaction to qualifying for the 2015 World Cup.

Afghanistan earned their place in Group A of the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand with a seven-wicket win over Kenya in what was the final game of the ICC World Cricket League Championship.

That victory meant they finished the campaign in second place to Ireland, who had already booked their place in Group B of the World Cup.

"We waited for last eight-ten years and today it is unbelievable. The dream has come true, so I am very excited. I don't know what to say," Hassan said, shortly after Nabi had hit the winning runs.

Nabi added: "Today is a special day for me and also for Afghanistan. It's a big achievement for Afghanistan cricket and also in my life to qualify for the World Cup."
