(AP) War-weary Afghanistan has achieved one of its finest sporting moments by qualifying for its first cricket World Cup.

The Afghans defeated Kenya by seven wickets on Friday in the last qualifying match.

Afghanistan finished second behind Ireland in qualifying, with both teams advancing automatically to the 2015 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

The cricket qualification comes less than a month after Afghanistan won its first soccer title, the South Asian Football Federation Championship.
