New Delhi: The Afghanistan cricket team leg spinner Rashid Khan, and other team members on Saturday played a game of cricket with children at the Arun Jaitley Cricket Stadium in Delhi.

The children were meeting international cricketers as part of Cricket4Good initiative launched by ICC and UNICEF to promote rights of boys and girls across world, and cricket and sports more broadly can play a critical role in tackling some of the pressing issues of our time.

 A global partnership between the International Cricket Council (ICC) and UNICEF calls on children, young people, and everyone to #BeAChampion for gender equality.

Cricket 4 Good is the ICC’s global community outreach programme, aimed at leveraging the vast power and reach of cricket to empower women and girls.

Richard Beighton, Chief Resource Mobilisation and Partnerships, UNICEF India encouraged children to enjoy the game and be a champion for girls.
