At least three people were killed when an explosion took place during a cricket league match at Kabul International Stadium on Wednesday. It is not yet known how many people have been injured.

As per the reports, the attack is a case of suicide bombing and took place at 3:45 pm (local time) on Wednesday afternoon. Out of three people killed, two were security officials and one civilian. All the players are said to be safe.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility or details of the players.

The Shpageeza tournament, which is now in fifth season, is one of a small number of Western-style sports competitions along with Afghan Premier League football that have grown up since a U.S.-led campaign toppled the Taliban in 2001.

Afghanistan has long been a victim of terrorism and has been deprived of regular international cricket games due to security concerns.
