Afghanistan pacer, Naveen Ul Haq has withdrawn from playing further in the Big Bash League. He has left a long note on Twitter to reveal the reason behind the same.

“Time to say won’t be participating in big bash after this until they stop these childish decisions that’s how they went about the one off test now ODI when a country is going through so much in place off being supportive you want to take the only reason of happiness from them #CA”, the Afghanistan cricketer wrote on his Twitter. 

Reportedly, Naveen Ul Haq’s unfortunate decision came after Cricket Australia had withdrawn from participating in the ODI series against Afghanistan, scheduled to be held in March.

The board took the decision in response to the unfair treatment meted out to women in Afghanistan. For the unversed, The Taliban Government in Afghanistan, recently, banned teenage girls from school and forbid women from attending university in Afghanistan. 

“Following extensive consultation with relevant stakeholders, including the Australian Government, Cricket Australia has decided that it is unable to proceed at this time with the upcoming ICC Super League three-match Men’s ODI series between Australia and Afghanistan scheduled for the UAE in March 2023,” Cricket Australia said in a statement.

“This decision follows the recent announcement by the Taliban of further restrictions on women’s and girls’ education and employment opportunities and their ability to access parks and gyms.

“CA is committed to supporting growing the game for women and men around the world, including in Afghanistan, and will continue to engage with the Afghanistan Cricket Board in anticipation of improved conditions for women and girls in the country.

Afghanistan fast bowler, Naveen Ul Haq isn’t too happy with the decision and, hence, vented out his frustration on Twitter. Fans have bombarded the comment section with reactions since he shared the post. Here’s a look at some of the notable ones:
