Horsemen in Quetta, Pakistan compete in the traditional game of buzkashi – polo played with a goat carcass. The game is popular in neighbouring Afghanistan. Buzkashi, which means “dragging the goat” in Persian, involves grabbing the carcass, galloping across the field and dropping it into a “circle of justice”, drawn in chalk and located at either end of the ground. The game was billed as a Pak-Afghan friendly with many of the players originally from neighbouring Afghanistan and the Afghan vice-consul in Quetta in attendance.
