Terrorist organization Taliban has completely conquered Afghanistan. Now its eyes are on the country’s cricket board. However, Hamid Shinwari, CEO of the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) has already made it clear that cricket will not suffer after radical political change in the country, as the Taliban loves and supports the game. But a recent photo board has raised questions over these claims.
Apart from the Test series against England, India captain Virat Kohli is set for this ‘mission’.
In fact, Ibrahim Momand, a former media manager and journalist for the Afghanistan Cricket Board, shared a photo from his Twitter handle, in which many gunmen see the Taliban, sitting in the hall. Ibrahim also claimed that Taliban fighters were sitting at the headquarters of the Afghanistan Cricket Board, along with Abdullah Mazari, a former Afghanistan cricketer. Mazari has played two international ODIs for his country. In addition, he has played 21 first class matches, 16 List A and 13 T20 matches.
The great Muttiah Muralidharan said, what players are playing them well in the present times
Let me tell you, the Cricket Board of India (BCCI) is also monitoring the situation in Afghanistan at this time. The board is fully confident that Afghanistan’s star players will participate in the second leg of the Indian Premier League. A BCCI source said, ‘It’s too early to respond now, but we are keeping an eye out. Nothing has changed for us and we expect Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi and other Afghan players to be part of the IPL.
