ICC gives Afghanistan $422,000

Dubai: The Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) was on Wednesday allocated $422,000 from ICC's Targeted Assistance and Performance Programme (TAPP).

This was decided at the International Cricket Council (ICC) and ICC Development International (IDI) meeting here April 16-17.

The ICC had earlier in January 2012 introduced a TAPP fund of $12 million to help develop more competitive teams at the highest level by targeting the Full Members and Associate/Affiliate Members for assistance.

This funding for the ACB is for the development of the National Cricket Academy.
