Story

AC has been supporting cricket in Afghanistan since 2008. It began with delivery of equipment to the Afghan Team when their National Academy was a dust field in Kabul and the team was in Division 5 of the World Cricket League. Against all the odds and after a meteoric rise through world cricket rankings, the Afghanistan National Cricket Team played in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 and was granted Test status in 2017. It will shortly take part in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. The Team is inspiring the hopes and dreams of the Afghan people and uniting a war-torn nation.

Cricket is now the nation's fastest growing sport. There are 320 cricket clubs in Afghanistan and 32 of its 34 provinces have a cricket team. The Afghanistan Cricket Board has divided the country into 5 cricket playing regions and each region has 4-10 provincial teams. 11 provinces have their own cricket stadium. There is now an Afghanistan Premier League which was based in Dubai this year and attracted players from all over the world ,

Help us to build more pitches, run more coaching camps and stage more tournaments.

What a fantastic idea to help the people of Afghanistan after all the misery they have suffered in the past. Great work by Dr Sara Fane too and your appearance at Old Trafford will surely boost funds.
