T20 leagues of different parts of the world and Afghan superstars are a special bond every cricket fan savors. Be it the leg-spin king Rashid Khan, ace all-rounder Mohammed Nabi or mystery spinner Mujeeb-Ur Rehman, cricketers from Afghanistan create wonders in every major T20 league. However, things may take a surprise change soon.

The ACB recently formed a 14 member committee to analyze and assess the cricket framework of the country. Despite few players making it big at the biggest stage, as a team, Afghanistan is yet to reach its peak. The growth of cricket has been unprecedented in Asian country but it definitely aims to be challengers and contenders at the highest level of the game.

“Our (Technical committee) plan is to discuss with ACB high-ups regarding the participation of our leading national cricketers in the domestic tournament,” Raees Ahmadzai, part of the newly-formed technical committee, stated. “Maybe the Afghanistan Cricket Board will reduce their (players’) participation in different franchise leagues and ask the players to take part in only three franchise-based T20 leagues in a year and they can choose their options as it is their choice,” he added.

As a part of the Future Tour Program of ICC, Afghanistan is set to play 37 ODIs, 14 T20Is, and 2 Test series in the 2022-23 cycle. They will play a 3 match ODI series against India in March 2022.
