Australia withdraws from Afghanistan ODI series in UAE

Cricket Australia (CA) has announced that they are going to withdraw from the upcoming three-match ODI series against Afghanistan that was scheduled to take place in March 2023 in the UAE. CA has taken the unfortunate step following a brief consultation with the Australian government.

The heavyweight Australia was set to play an ODI series against Afghanistan as a part of the ICC ODI Super League. The Aussies were going to fly to Dubai after a crucial Border-Gavaskar Trophy test series against India that will begin on February 9.

Cricket Australia made the decision after a recent announcement by the Taliban who overthrew the government and took control of Afghanistan. The Taliban stated that it was banning university education for all girls in the country. This created a sharp trigger with the ICC and CEO Geoff Allardice who was deeply concerned about the development.

CA withdrew from the series for Women’s Rights in Country

The Taliban has briefly imposed restrictions on girls and women across the country. After denying a girl child a university education, the Taliban also announced a reduction in employment opportunities for women across their territory. This decision was strongly condemned by Cricket Australia who withdrew from the series.

Cricket Australia addressed the media and made their statement after mentioning that they had a brief consultation with the Australian government before announcing the decision. CA further added that the regulating body is strongly committed to promoting better opportunities for girls and women across the globe. Cricket Australia also stated that it will continue to hold discussions with the Afghanistan Cricket Board to improve conditions for girls and women across the country. Furthermore, it will also insist ACB enhance women’s cricket in the country.

Notably, Australia has refrained from playing against Australia for the second consecutive time due to the Taliban’s succession in the country. Previously, Cricket Australia had withdrawn from the one-off test match that was scheduled to be played in November 2021. Australia and Afghanistan have met on four previous occasions out of which only one has been a bilateral fixture. The Afghanistan fans will be saddened by the development and will be keen to watch the side’s contest against the giant Aussies.
