Cricket gear donated by the British Embassy, May 2007

Afghanistan’s cricket season started this month with a ‘national Grade 1 tournament‘ called PEACE. The tournament was inaugurated by the Afghanistan Cricket President Shahzada Masoud and British Ambassador Stephen Evans – with Mr. Masoud bowling to Mr. Evans (who played a diplomatic forward defensive).

The British Embassy donated a significant amount of cricket equipment to the ACF and pledged its continuing support for the development of cricket in Afghanistan.

Six teams from across Afghanistan are taking part including two-time defending champions Shahab of Kabul as well as teams from Khost, Konar, Pakhtia and Kandahar provinces. Matches are 35-overs a side.
