Kabul: The Taliban have captured the entire country of Afghanistan. Photos and videos coming from Afghanistan on social media are very painful. The situation there is very bad and now the eyes of the Taliban have fallen on the cricket board of Afghanistan.
Azizullah Fazli has now been appointed as the chairman of the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB). Fazli’s appointment to the ACB is a major development after the Taliban took control of Afghanistan and President Ashraf Ghani left the country.

The ACB tweeted on Sunday and said, “Former ACB Chairman Fazli has been re-appointed as Executive Chairman of the Board. He will oversee ACB’s leadership and actions for the upcoming competitions.

Fazli had earlier become the chairman of ACB after resigning from the post of Atif Mashal. His tenure was from September 2018 to July 2019. Farhan Yousafzai became the chairman after he stepped down. Fazli has been associated with Afghanistan cricket for nearly two decades. He was one of the earliest group of players to establish the game in the country. After his playing career ended, he also served as the vice-president and consultant of the ACB.
Cricket is now threatened by Taliban
Recently, former media manager and journalist of Afghanistan Cricket Board Ibrahim Momand shared a photo on Twitter. In this photo Taliban armed with guns are seen in a hall. Let us tell you that this hall is the headquarters of the Afghanistan Cricket Board itself. While sharing this photo, Ibrahim Momand himself has given this information to the people.

Another surprising thing was seen in this photo. In fact, former Afghanistan cricketer Abdullah Mazari was also present in this photo with the Taliban. Mazhari, who made his debut for Afghanistan in 2010, has played 2 international one-day matches. Apart from this, Mazhari has also played 21 First Class, 16 List A and 13 T20 matches.
