For the first time, four British coaches are training Afghan cricketers in a training centre

Sixteen cricket players, including girls from 6 provinces of the country are practising in this training centre. The coaches will get licences and three best players will be sent to Britain after the trainings.

This is the first time that British cricket coaches are training Afghan cricket players in a four-day training programme.

“We are holding these training seminars for 16 players of whom 8 are girls and they have come from 6 provinces,” Rayees Ahmadzai, the former captain of the Afghan national cricket team told TOLOnews reporter.

“The training we are giving to the young people in Kabul is called street 20 cricket. It is a basic cricket game which is common among young people. What we have done for the young people here in Kabul is we have taught them how we deliver it so that they can become coaches and deliver it to thousands of young people around Afghanistan,” Adam Hoo, the coach of British cricket team told TOLOnews.

Meanwhile, William Petty, the British ambassador to Kabul said he is happy that his country is helping cricket teams in Afghanistan.

“I am proudly wearing my Afghan cricket shirt today just to show my support for Afghan cricket. I think given the start they have in the few years, I expect Afghanistan to be one of the top cricket nations before very long and I think with a bit of help and a bit of support to develop young cricketers, Afghanistan should be playing England one day,” Mr Petty told TOLOnews.
