Cricket: Pakistan helping Afghanistan

Pakistan supporting Afghanistan while countries like India, Sri Lanka & Bangladesh are conspicuous by their lack of support.

Afghanistan calls for support from cricket nations

But ACB chief executive Noor Mohammad Murad criticized the traditional Asian cricket powers on Saturday for failing to help the team over the past years, saying India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh have all failed to respond to his requests to set up games.

He said Pakistan is the only Asian country to support the Afghans, despite dealing with its own security problems. Pakistan’s second-string team played a one-day series against Afghanistan last year and the Pakistan Cricket Board allowed a team from Afghanistan to play in its domestic Twenty20 tournament.

Murad was especially critical of the Bangladesh Cricket Board.
