ACA statement on proposed Afghanistan Test

9 September, 2021

The ACA unequivocally endorses Cricket Australia’s statement on the upcoming Test Match against Afghanistan.

What is happening now in Afghanistan is a human rights issue that transcends the game of cricket.

And while we would love to see players such as Rashid Khan play against Australia, hosting this Test Match cannot be considered if that same opportunity to play the game is denied to Roya Samim and her teammates.
