KABUL (Pajhwok): The Aussies announced on Thursday pulling out of a one-day international (ODI) series against Afghanistan.

Cricket Australia (CA) said it had scrapped the series, scheduled for March in the UAE, in the wake of restrictions imposed on Afghan women and girls.

The series was cancelled after extensive consultation with stakeholders, including the Australian government, the board was quoted as saying by Reuters.

In a statement, the board affirmed its commitment to supporting the game for women and men around the world, including in Afghanistan.

CA promised: “We will continue to engage with the Afghanistan Cricket Board in anticipation of improved conditions for women and girls in the country.”
