The T20 World Cup 2021 will start this Sunday, October 17 in the United Arab Emirates and Oman. T20 World Cup was supposed to be played in India. But due to the Covid-19 situation, it was shifted to UAE and Oman. But still, India is hosting the event.
Afghanistan is grouped with India, Pakistan, New Zealand, and the other two qualifiers. Muhammad Nabi will lead the Afghanistan team after Rashid Khan stepped down from the captaincy.
Taliban’s impact on Cricket:
The Taliban who took over Afghanistan has said that they will not interfere in men’s cricket in Afghanistan. But the future of women’s cricket remains unclear.
The governing International Cricket Council (ICC) will discuss Afghanistan and women’s cricket at its next board meeting during the World Cup.
Last month, Cricket Australia threatened to scrap a test match against the men’s team if the Taliban did not allow women to play the sport. Fans were worried about the participation of the Afghanistan team in the T20 World Cup but now they are participating in the event with full zeal and zest.
