The Afghanistan cricket team finally have a home. On Saturday, the Board of Control for Cricket in India and the Afghanistan Cricket Board formally signed an agreement that grants Afghanistan the use of the Greater Noida Stadium as their "home" venue for three months.

Afghanistan are the current darlings of the cricket world and justifiably so. Coming from a war-torn country, their cricketers have overcome incredible challenges to swiftly climb up the cricket ladder and be ranked among cricket’s elite. A documentary released in 2010 (trailer above) gives a glimpse of their trials and tribulations.

Out of the Ashes, directed by Tim Albone, Lucy Martens and Leslie Knott, documents the heartwarming story of Afghanistan’s qualification for the ICC World Twenty20 in 2010. There are many sparkling moments in the documentary, chief among them being Afghanistan’s tense win over Jersey in a final amidst unbearable tension after they slipped to 42/7 chasing 80.

Unlike many other cricketing documentaries, the film provides a rare peek into Afghanistani cricket and its people – everyday individuals who brave the dangers of the Taliban to play a game they love.

If you’re already hooked by the trailer and have an hour and a half to spare, try the full documentary.
