Game Time: What does the return of the Taliban mean for sports in Afghanistan?

With the Taliban returning to power after 20 years, just like everything else in Afghanistan, the future of sports in the country remains highly uncertain. In the past the Taliban has promoted men’s cricket, but will it do so this time as well? And what about the participation of women in sports?

In this episode, hosts Gaurav Bhatt and Mihir Vasavda discuss the progress that sports like cricket and football have made over years in Afghanistan, and what they have meant for the people there. Plus, Gaurav talks about Afghanistan’s vibrant parkour scene, and the people that have made it possible.
