Afghanistan planning to host Pakistan for bilateral series in UAE

The Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) is looking forward for a bilateral limited-overs series against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates in August-September this year.

Although the two sides have met frequently in the  ICC and Asian Cricket Council (ACC) events, they are yet to face-off in a bilateral series at the senior level.

However, Afghanistan has sent its A team to Pakistan several times.

As per reports, a source in the PCB has said that the two boards had started talks on the series, which is likely to  include three One-day Internationals and as many T20Is in the UAE before the T20 World Cup.

Earlier, Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan had also asked its national board to arrange a bilateral series with Afghanistan when senior Afghan players including Muhammad Nabi had met him in January.

Significantly, the Afghan cricketers had urged Imran to start a bilateral series between the two countries at the senior level.

The source said that the PCB was looking at the option of playing the series when the team returns from West Indies in August as it will stop over in UAE and play the series in August.
