Cricket Australia cited Taliban’s moves to further restrict women’s rights in the war-torn nation for opting out of the ODI series against Afghanistan. “I am really disappointed to hear that Australia have pulled out of the series to play us in March,” Rashid posted on Instagram.

“I take great pride in representing my country and we have made great progress on the world stage. This decision from CA sets us back in that journey. If playing vs Afghanistan is so uncomfortable for Australia then I wouldn’t want to make anyone uncomfortable with my presence in the BBL.

“Therefore, I will be strongly considering my future in that competition,” his post added. He captioned the post, “Cricket! The only hope for the country. Keep politics out of it. @cricketaustralia @bbl @afghanistancricketboard.”
