Addressing the mentioned committee on behalf of ACB, CEO Mr. Lutfullah Stanikzai remarked, “Recommencement of domestic cricket is fundamental for our preparations and performance in international cricket. Our players need to be well prepared at the domestic level to be able to perform better at the international stage. “           

Mr. Stanikzai further added that cricket is an outdoor sport and all of our activities are monitored by ICC, therefore, it is imperative that cricket activities resume. He expressed thanks to Ministry of Public Health and other relevant health authorities for their cooperation with ACB so far.

Addressing the meeting, Mr. Sarwar Danish said, “Our Cricket Players have achieved a lot for the country, therefore, ACB is granted the approval concerned in order to recommence its cricketing activities within the country under the relevant health guidelines to prevent further spread of COVID-19. “

ACB had earlier submitted a request to Ministry of Public Health and the Government’s Special Emergency Committee for prevention of COVID-19 as required per the rules receiving approval today. It is a significant step in resumption of competitive cricket making ACB the first sporting authority in the country to resume its activities after restrictions were imposed by government few months ago to curb the spread of the novel corona virus.

The approval will enable ACB to conduct Grade-1 and Shpageeza Cricket League Tournaments in near future, albeit without spectators.
