“It can be said that cricket flourished during the Taliban era. “It is also a fact that many of our players practised in Peshawar and they made the sport mainstream in Afghanistan. “The good thing is that we are heading towards normalcy. The people have started working. We will resume our office from tomorrow and the national camp, which was underway ahead of the Pakistan series in Sri Lanka will also resume after a two-day break with the change in regime,” said Shinwari. Talking about the player’s safety, he said: “Other than four or five players who are playing overseas the rest are all in Kabul. As I said, they are safe and doing fine.”
