New Delhi. Afghanistan is going through a lot of troubles these days. There the Taliban has been captured. In such a situation, there is doubt about the team playing in the T20 World Cup (T20 World Cup 2021). The ICC is constantly keeping an eye on this. The World Cup is to be held in UAE and Oman from 17 October to 14 November. The chances of resumption of women’s cricket in Afghanistan are slim.
According to the news of Cricbuzz, the ICC is in constant talks with the Afghanistan Cricket Board regarding the changes being made. The biggest challenge for the board is to keep women’s cricket alive. Last year, 25 women players were given central contracts. After this the camp of these players was also organized. A source in ICC Women’s Cricket said that a big change has happened in Afghanistan. We don’t know what will happen next.
Women team is necessary for full member
According to ICC rules, for any board to become a full member, it is necessary to have a women’s team there. But in the current situation, it is very difficult to resume women’s cricket in Afghanistan. ICC Women’s Cricket member Lisa Sthalekar said that till now I have not heard anything from the ICC about Afghanistan women’s cricket. But I am personally concerned about what is happening there.
Cricket started from refugee camp
Former CEO of Afghanistan Cricket Board Shafiqullah Stanikzai said that cricket in the country started from refugee camps. We have come a long way since then. We achieved full membership even with limited resources. I hope and pray that cricket continues to develop in the country. Senior player Rashid Khan has already gone worried about the situation in the country. He also writes about this constantly on social media. However, the way for him to play IPL has been cleared.
India Team Home Venue
The Afghanistan cricket team has been playing its domestic international match in India. Lucknow’s Ekana Stadium is his home ground. Recently, he played the home series against West Indies here. The BCCI has also been continuously helping the Afghanistan Cricket Board. But after the arrival of the Taliban, the entire cricket program of the country has suffered a major setback.
