It makes me very happy.”The youngster who idolises Kumar Sangakkara added that he was disappointed as he did not score a century and hopes that he will score a ton in future.”I’m disappointed at the same time because I thought I could score a hundred. Hopefully, in the games ahead I will score a hundred for Afghanistan,” he said.The wicket-keeper batsman further added that he wants to become the greatest cricketer of Afghanistan and is very happy with the experience he got at the World Cup.Afghanistan lost their last game of the World Cup against West Indies by 23 runs.

Ikram’s magnificent performed went in vain.Afghanistan had a disappointing World Cup campaign as they lost all the nine games they have played. But in some matches, they showed glimpses of promise which they could take back as a positive from the tournament.
