Afghanistan cricket team fast bowler Naveen-ul-Haq took to social media to take a dig at Australia before the two teams face each other in Cricket World Cup 2023 on November 7. In a post made on Instagram, Naveen referred to the time in 2021 when Australia refused to travel to Afghanistan for a Test match due to political tensions. The Taliban seized control in August 2021 and as a result, Australia decided to cancel their travel plans. Naveen said that it will be interesting to see what Australia decides now considering the political situation in Afghanistan has not changed since then.
“Refusing to play the bilateral series, now it will be interesting to see cricket Australia stand in the World Cup #standards #humanrights or 2 points,” Naveen posted on Instagram.
