The Taliban government had announced the decision of banning the Indian Premier League (IPL) telecast in Afghanistan. The Taliban said the IPL matches sees the presence of women and cheerleaders at the stadium. This is a big blow to cricket lovers and the media channel owners in the country.

The insider news is that a few channels bagged the streaming rights of the successful tournament Indian Premier League (IPL). The new government has been behaving harshly towards the sports in the country. The women's team was also canceled by the government.

The world countries and a few organisations have been raising their concerns for the rights of the women in the Taliban ruling. The women in Afghanistan are fearing that the black period of 1996-2001, where the Taliban ran the country might be repeated.

During this period, women went through one of the horrific periods in their life. The lady students and women were forced to not step out of their homes for their academic and job purposes.
