MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Afghanistan cricket officials on Thursday condemned Australia’s decision to withdraw from the men’s one-day international cricket series.

Cricket Australia has cited the Taliban government’s latest crackdown on women’s rights in Afghanistan for canceling three ODIs in the United Arab Emirates in March.

The Afghanistan Cricket Board said it was “extremely disappointed and saddened” by Cricket Australia’s announcement and would appeal to the International Cricket Council.

He accused CA of prioritizing political interests over fair play and sportsmanship, undermining the integrity of the game and damaging relations between the two countries.

“Cricket has played an important role in promoting unity and national pride in Afghanistan,” the board said. “After war and conflict, cricket has helped bring people together and bring a sense of normalcy to the country. He was also an important source of hope and inspiration for all Afghans, especially the youth.

He said he would reconsider the participation of Afghan players in the Big Bash League if the decision is not overturned.
