Kabul, Afghanistan, December 03, 2021. A cricket player is playing cricket at dusk in the dust surrounding him in Chaman-e-Huzoori park in downtown Kabul. Cricket, the most popular sport in Afghanistan, is still alive among the people despite the recent miseries war has imposed on them. Many chase their dreams to be a professional cricket player and for others, it is a means to bring temporary oblivion.
