The nature of the blast is yet to be ascertained, the FC officials said.

A suspected United States drone killed on Friday three militants in an area near Pakistan's border with Afghanistan, a senior provincial official said.

Following a suicide attack that killed at least three people in Kabul, former Australian cricketer Dean Jones, who is now working as a broadcaster in Afghanistan, has come out in support of the Asian country. "It was not clear how those religious leaders are different from the Afghan Taliban", the Dawn said. "This is just a propaganda of the Western media".

"This year we have some tremendous achievements", Stanekzai said, including Afghanistan's full membership of the International Cricket Council.

Drone strikes are highly unpopular among the Pakistani public as they kill militants and common people including women and kids without discrimination.

If confirmed, it would be the first us drone strike on Pakistan since President Donald Trump announced his new strategy for Afghanistan last month.

The US president unveiled his administration's new strategy in Afghanistan last month.

The Taliban factions have said they would fight for Pakistan like they had rendered sacrifices for their own country [Afghanistan]. Pakistan has carried out several operations against militants in Kurram, but violence has persisted. Islamabad, however, denies there are any militants on its side.

In a statement, Zeke Johnson, a senior director of programs at Amnesty International USA, expressed his concern over the strike in Pakistan, saying "the last thing the US should be doing right now is expanding a global, secret killing program".

Pakistani Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, however, told Reuters on Monday that such a move would be counterproductive. "It's not in anyone's interest for Afghanistan to remain a sink hole of violence and a safe haven for extreme terrorism", he said.

Cricket fans in Afghanistan have a record number of foreign players to watch in the ongoing Shpageeza Cricket League despite security concerns.
