Tim Paine was upset with the ICC decision that they allow Afghanistan to play T20WC. He does not want a nation to play a major event that imposed a ban on its women’s team. Yes after the Taliban takes control in Afghanistan, now they are everything for cricket Afghanistan. They make decisions about what they wanted. They imposed shariah law in Afghanistan and according to it, women are not allowed to play sports.
So Taliban imposed bacon women cricket Tim Paine expresses his anger for ICC. He did not expect this decision as he did not want any country to play a tournament. That did give many opportunities to its women.
Afghanistan to Play may lost his test status
Afghan may lose its test-playing nation status. A nation only becomes a test nation if they allow its women’s team to play international events. So after the ban, Australia called off a test match with Afghanistan. As per rules, the Ban of women’s teams may lead to scratch the tag of test playing nation.
