World Cup 2015: United States Embassy in Kabul congratulates Afghanistan for win…before match begins!

The United States Embassy in Kabul made the ‘kind gesture’ of congratulatingAfghanistan for their win overBangladesh in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. Only very strangely, the tweet came before the match began!

Afghanistan play Bangladesh in their debut match of World Cup 2015 atCanberra and will hope to commence their campaign on a winning note and to validate the premature ‘congratulatory message’ of the US Embassy in Kabul.

This is the tournament opener for both sides and a win in the match will set the tone for the victorious team. The match could prove to be a close encounter given that Afghanistan have made huge strides in international cricket over the recent years.

In the warm up matches Afghanistan enjoyed a more fruitful run winning one game and losing the other, while Bangladesh lost both their matches against Pakistan and Ireland. Afghanistan beat the UAE, while succumbed to a big defeat against India.

Here is the surprising tweet!

Congratulations to for their win over in the Cricket World Cup

Hope their prophecy comes true!
