My guess, players are largely based outside the country, or based in the few big cities the government still controls.

Hmm .But is it like its a part of Central Asia now

Afghanistan is still part of SAARC and has not shown any intent of leaving it. So, I doubt if their non-participation is due to they not considering themselves as a South Asian nation.

Broadcast rights were sold to Indian company NK Media. According to Around the Rings broadcasts should be available in all participating nations.

:AFG does not compete anymore.

 

Wouldn't India be considered a bigger fail? 28 medals all time for the second most populous nation is pretty embarrassing imo.

Why isn’t Afghanistan competing anymore?

We had a conversation about this on the last page I think. Essentially it’s for a number of possible reasons. The most likely reason being that they’ve joined the Central Asian region of the OCA (which is in line with some of the policies they’ve been taking). It could also be the hardship of transporting athletes because of the Taliban, or a lack of funding.

This is equivalent to nothing. A small media from Orissa whose channel is only available in Bhubaneshwar. 

 

Meanwhile only Nepal is participating paragliding so 4 individual cleansweeps  are sure with all 4 athletes from Nepal. 

 

I'd love to watch cricket match between Bhutan and Maldives. 

 

All nations are participating in only Athletics, Shooting, Badminton and Basketball.

A press release from the organizing committee stated that Paragliding has been dropped from the games. Always nice to see countries not taking a free gold medal at every opportunity they get :yes
