Afghanistan vs Australia
ICC planning to take strict action against Afghanistan Cricket Board

Cricket Australia recently caused a stir after they pulled out from the ODI series against Afghanistan, scheduled in March, citing the human rights issues in the turbulent country.

The Australian men’s team was supposed to travel to UAE in March to play an ODI series against Afghanistan but pulled out because the Taliban decided to ban women from pursuing higher education.

Not just that, the Taliban also refused to field a women’s team for the inaugural U-19 women’s T20 World Cup, making them the only full-member nation not to represent their country at the ongoing tournament.

The move did not go well with cricket Australia, and they got compelled to take the necessary step. Meanwhile, in the latest development, after Australia, ICC is also planning to take strict actions against the Afghanistan Cricket Board for their failure to field a women’s team.

Leading news portal, Cricbuzz, reported that ICC might not look to suspend or revoke Afghanistan’s full member status, but the nature of the punishment will be decided in ICC’s next meeting in March.

“We are upset by recent developments in Afghanistan. We will put this matter on the table in our next meeting in March. We aim to see men and women play cricket in Afghanistan and will work towards fulfilling that,” said an ICC spokesperson.
