Rashid Khan resigns captaincy of Afghan cricket team: a war against the Taliban?
Afghanistan under the occupation of the Taliban. One restriction after another in sports.
During the heated political situation in the country, Rashid Khan made a great decision.
Rashid Khan, the famous Afghan international cricketer, resigned his captaincy with great pride to the board.
There are Taliban in the Taliban. Fatwa cast onto the playing field to gain power.
Before taking power in Afghanistan, the Taliban promised they would not interfere on the playing field.
However, the Taliban administration has once again made it clear that there is a remarkable difference in word and deed.
Meanwhile, the Afghan captain made explosive accusations. An open and arrogant post on Twitter addressed the ACB, the Afghan Cricket Board.
Rashid sought the resignation of the captain’s position. “As captain, I am responsible to the country,” he wrote.
I also have the right to select players on the team. However, the selection committee announced the World Cup team without my opinion.
Rashid then tweeted that he was leaving the T20 team captaincy.
News has already come to light that the Afghan government is spinning the stick in the playground.
The Taliban have been promoting cricket for some time. However, the Taliban announced that they would stop playing for girls shortly after taking office.
Also, it includes girls’ cricket. The Taliban claim that they did not display the girl’s bodies.
The girls’ bodies can be seen while they play. So girls cannot enter the playground this time.
Recently Ahmadullah Wasik, deputy director of the Taliban cultural commission, said: “I don’t think there is any need for women to play cricket.
In cricket, women’s faces and bodies are not covered. Islam does not tolerate this kind of thing. This is the reason why women have been forbidden to play.
However, the Taliban’s ban on girls’ sports has drawn criticism around the world includes Australia.
The Australian government has instructed the board to sever all cricket ties with Afghanistan. The Afghanistan Cricket Board is in trouble with the Australian Board’s decision.
The Australian Cricket Board declared, they will not play the test series against the Afghan men’s team if a ban on women’s cricket is imposed in Afghanistan.
Earlier, Rashid Khan had called on the world to save Afghanistan from the violence of the Taliban.
In a Twitter post, he wrote: “Dear world leaders. My country is in crisis today. Thousands of innocent people in the country, including children and women, are martyred every day.
Homes and properties are constantly being destroyed. Many families have been relocated … save us from this troubled environment. Stop killing Afghans. We want peace.”
