Pakistani cricketers called back after bomb blast during Afghanistan's domestic T20 league

A grenade blast during the cricket match wounded four spectators at Kabul International stadium, hosting the country’s domestic T20 league. Although the violence level has fallen since the Taliban took over Afghanistan, but Daesh has carried out several gunshots and bomb blasts in the last few months.

Hundreds of people were enjoying the match on Friday in the main stadium when the incident happened, and the match was halted temporarily as ordered by the authorities.

The league named Shpagheeza Cricket League is the first such contest happening in Afghanistan since the Taliban’s regime. The Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) has assured that all players, staffs, foreigners, and everyone are safe following the bomb blast during the domestic T20 league.

The eight-team contest has multiple players from foreign countries, including Pakistan. Four cricketers from the neighbour country, including Kamran Ghulam, Mir Hamza, Asif Afridi, and Iftikhar Ahmed, were participating in the league.

Fearing the security threat, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has called back all of its players. They were instructed by the board to return immediately, not taking any risk.
