Why do you think this would happen?
It’s way more likely the opposite happening.
Because its happened once (before 1965) and has been re-introduced in 2021. Texas recently signed SB 1 into law which puts a lot of needless restrictions on voting targetting black, hispanic, and asian voters because demographic change is eroding the republican advantage in traditionally conservative places like Texas and Georgia (GA has already "gone" blue).

The ICC will be ruling on Afghanistan in November.

My gut feel is they will not touch Afghanistan's Test status or full membership as ACB clearly has nothing to do with the Taliban. Plus AFG is the ICC's sole success story. But they won't penalize individual teams from refusing to play Afghanistan.

Eventually this will mean Afghanistan will have a marked reduction in terms of the fixtures they have.

If they don't / can't field a women's team then they have to be stripped off their test status. ACB cannot field a women's team without taliban allowing them to do so. If ICC feels this is govt intervention then they might as well suspend Afghanistan.

They were quick to do that to Zimbabwe. The reason why Zimbos are not playing the WC next month.

They've had Test status for over 4 years. Remind me when they have ever fielded women's team in that time?
