Afghan army targets Taliban hideout, killing 3

Initially, it was reported that the explosion took place at the stadium gate.

An ongoing game of the Shpageeza T20 Cricket League in Afghanistan between the Boost Defenders and the Mis-E-Ainak Knights is now put to a pause after a suicide bomber detonated his explosives at a check point outside the Kabul International Cricket Stadium, the venue for the game.

Officials said that a suicide bomber detonated his explosives at a check post leading to Kabul International Cricket Stadium, where the Shpageeza Cricket League match was being held. All players were said to be safe.

Two members of Afghan security forces have been killed in a bomb attack carried out near a cricket stadium in the capital Kabul.

Cricket Board officials said the match was stopped immediately but that they could resume the match later.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attack yet.

The Cricket League kicked off on Monday and is scheduled to run through to September 22 at the stadium.
