New Delhi. Despite the return of Taliban rule in Afghanistan, there is no crisis in men’s cricket. The Taliban have allowed the Afghan cricket team to play a single Test against Australia in November. Afghanistan will also take part in the T20 World Cup to be held in October-November. Hamid Shinwari, chief executive of the Afghanistan Cricket Board, said international cricket matches would continue under the Taliban.
Earlier, the Taliban ruled Afghanistan from 1996 to 2001. The Taliban banned most forms of entertainment, including many sports, in their first term. At the same time, stadiums were used to carry out executions in public.
Cricket and other sports were expected to be affected by the Taliban regime after the withdrawal of US and NATO forces from Afghanistan. But Afghanistan Cricket Board officials have repeatedly said that cricket will continue to receive support from the Taliban. The Taliban have vowed not to impose strict Islamic law on the country after seizing the capital, Kabul, last month.
The Afghan team will play a Test match in Australia
Afghanistan will play its only Test in Hobart from November 27 to December 1 this year. This match was only supposed to be held last year. But the match could not be held due to travel ban due to Corona. This will be Afghanistan’s first match in Australia.
