Movie Info

In just a few years, the Afghan cricket team has risen from obscurity in the sport's lowest ranks to phenomenal success in the highly competitive international arena. This is the remarkable and inspirational story of coach Taj Malik Aleem and his team, who became the sport's unlikeliest heroes during a triumphant campaign culminating in the crucial World Cup qualifier in South Africa. In a country more often associated with war and rigged elections, their incredible journey is an absolute joy to behold.

In the context of ample news coverage and more serious documentaries about conflict and politics in Afghanistan, this is a warm and humanising diversion.

Here's a documentary that's amusing, affecting and life-affirming in equal measure.

Oct 29, 2010 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It is an extraordinary story of the triumph of hope over expectation, with first- team coach Taj Malik Alam, sacked and then reinstated by the duplicitous authorities, as the central character.

It's a warmly-observed and often very touching documentary about the efforts of a tireless Afghani called Taj Malik to have his national team qualify for the 2011 Cricket World Cup.
