Afghanistan first cricket test approved by Taliban since the takeover
Afghanistan’s first cricket Test has been approved by the Taliban since their takeover, hovering expectations that international matches will endure as usual under the new rule.
“We have got approval to send the team to Australia,” stated the chief executive of the Afghanistan Cricket Board Hamid Shinwari.
The Test match, which will be played in Hobart from November 27-December 1, was previously scheduled for last year but it was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic and international travel limitations.
It will be Afghanistan’s first Test in Australia.
The Afghanistan team will feature in the Twenty20 World Cup, to be held in the United Arab Emirates from October 17-November 15, before their Australia tour.
Shinwari also established Afghanistan’s Under-19 cricket team will tour Bangladesh later this month.
Since the U.S and NATO forces’ evacuation from Afghanistan after the Taliban flounced into Kabul last month there were fears that cricket and other sports would be hit badly.
Furthermore Afghanistan’s home ODI series against Pakistan shifted to Sri Lanka was however annulled until next year over logistical and Covid-19 restrictions last week.
