The ICC Chief Executive officer expressed his concern over the Dysfunctioning Afghan women’s cricket team, a matter to be taken up in the next meeting in March.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) announced that “in terms of females playing cricket in Afghanistan, there is no activity at the moment”. The statement was issued amid starting of the first women’s match under-19 age World Cup in the coming week.

The ICC CEO Geoff Allardice has raised his concern over the lack of development of women’s cricket in Afghanistan. The statement comes amid the Taliban (IEA) banning Afghan females from higher education and women staff from working in non-governmental organizations in the recent past.

It is expected that the first women under-19 age group cricket world tournament will start in South Africa within a few days, in which Afghanistan is a full ICC member without a women’s cricket team representing the country.

Allardice commented, “Our board has been monitoring progress since the regime change in August 2021. It is a concern that progress is not being made in Afghanistan, and it is something our board will consider at its next meeting in March. As far as we know, there isn’t activity at the moment.”
