Why will the Afghanistani Cricketers leave the on-going BBL 12 (2)

Afghanistani Cricketers have responded to Cricket Australia‘s decision to not travel to the UAE for the 3-match ODI series which was scheduled to begin from March onwards. This decision is not being welcomed in the Afghani cricket fraternity and slammed them for being unfair.

One thing to notice here is that Australia have prevented from playing against Afg in a bilateral series for the second time. A couple of years ago CA pulled out from a 1-one off Test match due to their rulers’ harsh treatment of Women rights policy.

Afghanistan’s policies have not changed much since then and CA have stamped another blockade on a possible series. Their verdict had various connotation but the board’s own narrative was that they don’t support a regime or govt. which exploits the rights of Women and doesn’t allow them to get educated or employed.

In response, a lot of players featured in the BBL are considering to leave the on-going season of Big Bash League T20 with immediate effect. Rashid Khan tweeted about CA’s decision and admitted that he was not expecting such a move.

He also asked if they are comfortable enough to let him feature in the league and his statement indicates that he might quit playing in the BBL. Fazalhaq Farooqi’s contract with Sydney Thunders have already been terminated due to certain undisclosed Disciplinary measures.

Pacer Naveen-Ul-Haq was the first to initiate such an action as he has already decided to not play in the Australian domestic circuit. Rashid Khan’s tweet indicated that he is also set to leave the BBL soonwhile Mujeeb-Ur-Rahman and Izharulhaq Naveed are still thinking about their future in BBL.
