The Long-Awaited Match between Australia and Afghanistan is Again Postponed to an Indefinite Term
Cricket Australia has confirmed that the long-awaited test match against Afghanistan has been postponed again. This time, the spokesman said, this is due to the refusal of the CA to support the new Taliban regime in restricting the admission of Afghan women to sports.
However, neither side canceled the test match. The Australian side stated that it is ready to accept athletes from Afghanistan any day when the situation clears up a little and the parties come to a compromise.
As a spokesman for Cricket Australia said: “We look forward to hosting Afghan athletes this season who are strong and worthy opponents for both the men’s and women’s teams.”
For Australia, this match would be a great training session before the Ashes kicks off soon, but now it will probably not be possible. Now the team has planned a training match between their players.
At this time, the English team is also actively preparing. And Tip Payne, who was recovering from a serious injury, is trying to return to the Australian team. It remains to be hoped that the clash between the two teams will be no less exciting than in previous seasons.
