Making a major decision on Thursday, Cricket Australia (CA) canceled its upcoming ODI series. Let us tell you that the Australian team had to play a three match ODI series against Afghanistan in the United Arab Emirates. But the CA has taken this decision in protest against the Taliban’s announcement against women’s education and work. Now, as a result, Afghanistan will also get a huge advantage from this and the Afghan team will also get 30 points for the ongoing Cricket World Cup Super League. Because of this, Australia will lose one place, then Afghanistan will gain a huge benefit.

In a post, Cricket Australia reported on this decision on its official Twitter account, writing that Cricket Australia has always supported both women and men moving forward. We have the same thought regarding Afghanistan. We will be in contact with the Afghanistan Cricket Board and will continue our efforts to improve the status of women in the country. Due to the announcement made by the Taliban against women’s freedom, we will not be playing the three-match ODI series with Afghanistan in the United Arab Emirates in March.

Significantly, the Taliban had captured Afghanistan in 2021. This did not affect the men’s cricket team, but the Taliban prohibited women from competing in sporting activities. The decision was criticized by Cricket Australia. Cricket Australia also thanked the Australian government for their support in this whole matter. Afghanistan is currently the only full ICC member country to participate without a women’s team. At the same time, the Afghanistan team is not included in the U-19 Women’s World Cup that begins on Saturday.

Great advantage for the Afghan team in the World Cup Super League

If we talk about the current points table of the World Cup Super League, being the host nation, the Indian team qualified automatically. Afghanistan, on the other hand, have 115 points so far and with the absence of this series, they will get a full 30 points and the team will come out on top with 145 points based on the current table. At the same time, Australia has 120 points, and not playing this series may cause the loss of the team. The Australian team also has to play a three match ODI series against India in February-March. The top 8 teams from this table will directly qualify for the 2023 ODI World Cup to be held in India, including the host. While the rest of the teams will have to play the qualifying round.
