Rashid Khan is in Dubai, practicing, having fun with other players. In fact, the new government of Afghanistan, the Taliban, has banned even watching IPL.
Taliban has captured 6 big stadiums in Afghanistan
There have been constant reports that this time Afghan players will not be seen playing in the IPL. This thing was further strengthened when on August 15, as soon as Afghanistan was captured, the Taliban captured 6 big cricket stadiums in Afghanistan including Kabul.
After this Rashid Khan tweeted and appealed to the world to save cricket in Afghanistan. Then events changed rapidly in Afghanistan. This time the Taliban is not the same Taliban who banned cricket completely.
Rashid bowled fiercely in the practice match of his first match in the IPL.
This time the Taliban government selected Afghanistan’s team for the T20 World Cup starting from October 17. The captain was made the one who was talking the most in social media, ie Rashid Khan. But the Taliban banned watching IPL in their country.
After this Rashid Khan left the captaincy of Afghanistan T20 cricket team. He said that the Afghanistan Cricket Board did not take his consent before choosing the team.
But Rashid’s decision to leave the captaincy was seen as a link to the ban on IPL. Now this thing is getting more stamped. Rashid has come to Dubai. He can be seen playing from today itself.
