Afghanistan seeks to play series with Pakistan in wake of Australia cancellation

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) has reached out to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to arrange a series of matches, separate from the previously scheduled ICC Super League games between the two nations, following Australia’s decision to cancel their series with the Afghan team.
According to a credible source within the PCB, a request has been made to play three One Day Internationals (ODIs) in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in March.
The PCB is said to be evaluating potential dates, looking for a window of opportunity that falls between the end of the Pakistan Super League and prior to Pakistan’s home series against New Zealand. If the series does go ahead, it will be held in the UAE.
It should be noted that these three ODIs would not be part of the ICC World Cup Super Series matches, which are scheduled to take place in August between Afghanistan and Pakistan.
This development comes after the Taliban government in Afghanistan restricted the participation of women in sports, leading to Australia’s cancellation of their series with the Afghan team.
