Originally it was announced that Afghanistan would compete in the 12th West Asia Baseball Cup held this week in Pakistan. However, the team is not participating.
We have received word from a member of the Pakistan Federation Baseball that the team did in fact show up to play but did not bring the required documentation for its players and thus was disqualified.
So the five team tournament has gone to four.
Keep checking back for more information on the tournament as it progresses this week.
