Khost to have its first cricket stadium

An agreement to that effect was signed by the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) and German association based in Kabul.

Having a capacity of holding 6000 spectators, the stadium will be constructed on 25 acres of land.

Addressing the signing ceremony, German association president, Mohammad Khalid Salimi, regarded the stadium as the platform to “bring the youth on two sides of the Durrand Line—the Afghan-Pak order—together through sports.”

This comes after India donated USd 1mn to construct a cricket stadium in Kandahar province.

With the success of the Afghan national cricket team, more and more Afghan youths are inspired to take Cricket as their passion.
