Blast outside Afghanistan cricket stadium during league match; 2 killed

The Taliban claimed responsibility for that attack.

The match was on a break while the attack happened, but resumed without delay.

The match was stopped immediately. Sports events have been targeted in the past by militants including the Taliban.

Players were on a break and not on the pitch at the time of the explosion.

A small number of foreign players are also taking part in the competition.

In June, Afghanistan was granted full membership of Test status at the same time as Ireland.

As per the reports, the attack is a case of suicide bombing and took place at 3:45 pm (local time) on Wednesday afternoon.

The Tournament, which features six teams, started on Sep. The pipeline will transport Caspian Sea natural gas from Turkmenistan through Afghanistan into Pakistan and then to India.

Some reports have said as many as 9 people have been killed. One preliminary conclusion of the study is that the official narrative by NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) that fire caused the building's collapse is false. It has been a testing pad for talented youngsters from all nooks and corners of the country. Those funds are desperately needed to rebuild south Texas and Florida and to help the people there.

War-torn Afghanistan has earned acclaim in cricket in recent years as an emerging force in international play.
