Prior to the Afghanistan-Australia match on Tuesday, Afghan cricketer Naveen-Ul-Haq questioned Cricket Australia if they prioritize human rights or two points in the ongoing ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023.
“Refusing to play the bilateral series, now it will be interesting to see cricket Australia stand in the World Cup,” Haq said, attaching emojis with “#standards 🤔, #human rights 🤔 or 2 points 🤔”.
Cricket Australia canceled its three match ODI series with Afghanistan in January this year to criticize restrictions imposed on Afghan women and girls.
On Instagram, Naveen-Ul-Haq has challenged the Australian Cricket board about whether they will stand on their previous position.
Afghanistan so far secured four wins in World Cup 2023 against, defeating England by 69 runs, Pakistan by eight wickets, Sri Lanka by seven and Netherlands seven wickets.
