New Delhi
Not a day goes by when a news from Afghanistan does not capture the attention of the international media. No one can imagine when the Taliban, who grabbed power by coup on the basis of gun, would take any action. The kind of situation in the country, along with the basic needs like education, health, there is a question mark on the future of cricket as well.

With the IPL and World T20 at its head, one of the questions is whether Afghan cricketers will be able to participate in these international events. Now the Taliban has taken the first major decision regarding the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB). The latest news is about the historic Afghanistan-Australia Test match.
