KABUL, AFGHANISTAN - JULY 27: Afghan cricket players celebrate their team's win during a local league game July 27, 2007 in Kabul, Afghanistan. After the fall of the Taliban when the refugees returned from camps in Pakistan they came back having learned a new sport, Cricket. There are now leagues spread across the country playing in dusty fields. For the average Afghan team the equipment is cheap but the uniforms are not affordable so they play in sandals and their traditional shawal kamis. (Photo by Paula Bronstein/Getty Images)
