New Delhi. The ODI series between Australia and Afghanistan was to be held in the UAE in the coming March, but will not happen now, as Cricket Australia has refused to play against Afghanistan. What is the reason? The reason is Taliban rule in Afghanistan. In fact, Cricket Australia has said in a statement that these days the situation in Afghanistan has remained chaotic due to the Taliban rule. Women have been barred from even going to school. People have to live a life full of restrictions. Chaotic situation prevails in the country. In such a situation, it would not be fair to play with Afghanistan. Let us tell you that citing all these reasons, Australia refused to play with Afghanistan. Which was opposed by the Afghan cricket team. Many players of Afghanistan have come forward and opposed this decision of Australia Cricket. Which includes the names of many players.
Meanwhile, the tweet of Afghani bowler Rashid Khan has made headlines, in which he has strongly opposed the decision of Cricket Australia. Describing Australia’s decision as politically motivated, he has also appealed to everyone to keep cricket away from politics. Let us tell you further in detail what he has said in his tweet.
Actually, Afghan cricketer Rashid Khan tweeted that, ‘I am really disappointed to hear that Australia has refused to play the series against us in March. I am very proud to represent my country and we have made great progress on the world stage. He said that CA’s decision is like going backwards for us. If it is that uncomfortable for Australia to play against Afghanistan, I would not want to make anyone uncomfortable with my presence in the Big Bash League. In such a situation, I will definitely think again about my future in T20 league.
Along with this, Afghan cricketer Naveen-ul-Haq has also objected to this decision of Cricket Australia. He tweeted that I will not play in the Big Bash League until such wrong decisions are withdrawn. First a Test match and now ODI, instead of supporting a country which is already suffering a lot, Cricket Australia is taking away the only reason for its happiness. At the same time, it is believed that other Afghan players may also object to this decision of Australian cricket in the coming days.
However, now who’s reaction remains in the coming days. Everyone’s eyes will be fixed on this. Let us tell you that in 2021, the Taliban regime had established its rule in Afghanistan, after which the Taliban administrators are running the country according to their policies, which have been continuously opposed by the Afghan politicians, but no one has come forward and expressed their views. Didn’t dare to speak up. Even the then Afghan President Ashraf Ghani himself came on the backfoot.
