Stars like <a href="www.cricketcountry.com/players/rashid-khan">Rashid Khan</a>, Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Mohammad Nabi are now household names across the globe. Following their success in limited-overs cricket, Afghanistan have been granted Test status. They are scheduled to play their first Test in a less than a month s time, against <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/India">India</a>. Sadly, some parts of the terror-laden nation continue to be victims of violence. According to <em>The </em><em>Times of India</em>, eight cricketers have been reported dead after multiple blasts during a cricket match in the Eastern Nangarhar Province as players and spectators were celebrating the holy month of Ramadan. <p></p> <p></p>Spokesperson Attahullah Khogyani confirmed that around 45 people were injured at the stadium in Jalalabad. No terror organisation has come forward and taken claim to such a barbaric act, but sources say that Taliban insurgents and ISIS are active in the province. <p></p> <p></p>We at CricketCountry pray for a speedy recovery for people injured in the dastardly attack.
