Australia have withdrawn from the ODIs vs Afghanistan in March after more restrictions on women imposed by the Taliban, Cricket Australia confirmed as per Reuters.
The Taliban in December banned women from attending universities.
Girls are not allowed to go to school since March 2022.
They are also prohibited from visiting parks and gyms.
Australia and Afghanistan were to play 3 ODIs in UAE.
But CA canceled the series after “extensive consultation” with stakeholders and one of them was the Australian government.
“This decision follows the recent announcement by the Taliban of further restrictions on women’s and girls’ education and employment opportunities and their ability to access parks and gyms,” said CA’s statement.
“We thank the Australian government for its support on this matter,” the statement added.
