Afghanistan's national team returned home to Kabul on Tuesday evening to a grand welcome. A crowd of around 1000 turned up at the Kabul International Airport to greet the team.

The players were returning home after claiming the silver medal at the Asian Games in China as also its maiden ICC Intercontinental Cup title by beating Scotland in Dubai.

Some from the crowd were allowed into an area with restricted entry at the airport so as to enable them to greet the team. Some members of the crowd danced for the team by forming a circle and performed the traditional Afghan Attan dance to the tune of Toola (traditional wooden flute) and drums.
