London: Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Ramiz Raja has said that the ICC will put pressure on Afghanistan to clarify its position on the ban of women’s cricket after the Taliban took control of the government in Kabul.  Raja is part of an International Cricket Council working group reviewing the state of the game in Afghanistan.

“Pressure will be put on Afghanistan. I’m sure they will have to decide in the next six months how they deal with the ICC,” Raja told Stumped on the BBC World


It is an ICC requirement for full members to also have a national women’s team, besides the men’s side. But the return to Taliban rule has led to the prospect of women being forbidden to play cricket in Afghanistan. “Like everybody else, we are giving them time. They are in a difficult situation,” said Raja. Afghanistan is one of 12 full members of the ICC. Afghanistan’s men took part in the T20 World Cup that was played in the UAE and Oman in October and November.
