Afghan women will continue playing cricket: chairman ACB

Nov 25, 2021: Afghan women will continue to play cricket, the newly appointed chairman of the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) Mirwais Ashraf announced on Wednesday.

During his introductory meeting with ACB staff and managers, the chairman said it was important for the country to allow Afghan women to play in order to be part of the International Cricket Council (ICC), according to TOLO news.

“Women’s cricket is one of the major requirements of the ICC, therefore, it is committed to obtaining it,” said Ashraf. “Our girls will be playing cricket on a normal basis and we are looking to provide for their basic needs and all the facilities they need.”

Ashraf added that the ACB values the requirements of the ICC.

The agency said recent changes in the ACB’s leadership had been criticized by the ICC, and the body said it had “formed a group to review the status of cricket in Afghanistan.” “Every employee should adhere to the ACB and do their best to perform well in their areas,” he said.

It is to be noted that after the occupation of Afghanistan by the Taliban, concerns have arisen regarding women’s sports in the country. Several female athletes have fled Kabul.
