The same Bomb explosion incident happened in this Shpageeza Cricket League back on 2017
Speaking of the other blasts from earlier, several blasts happened through Gurdwara Karte Parwan in Kabul’s Bagh-e Bala neighbourhood in June. This is not the first time that a bomb explosion happened in this league. In 2017, a suicide bomber detonated explosives at a checkpoint outside the Alokozay Kabul International Cricket Ground in Kabul.
The explosion took place on Wednesday, 13th September 2017. It also took place when Boost Defenders and Mis-E-Ainak Knights were playing a match in this tournament. Speaking about today’s incident, all players went to a bunker to save themselves from any life-threatening mishaps. It was the 22nd league match of the Shpageeza Cricket League. The overall condition of this country is not up to the mark as the Taliban have taken over in August 2021.
In recent times, The Islamic State has targetted several religious monuments. Islamic State Khorasan Province (ISKP) attacked the Gurudwara, which claimed the lives of dozens of Sikhs and Taliban members. As of now, nine people have been found wounded while casualty members are most likely to be higher. Apparently, the second innings of the match has been started after the blast at the stadium.
