Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) has announced that it will host Pakistan for a three-match ODI series in 2023. ACB released its official fixture list for the next two years which includes home series against top Test-playing nations including Pakistan, West Indies, New Zealand, and Australia.
The tentative dates for Pakistan’s tour of Afghanistan are stated as Feb-March in 2023 but it is unlikely that the series will be held in this timeframe due to Pakistan Super League which is held in February-March each year.
The dates for the tour are yet to be finalized and will be announced in due time after the two cricket boards come to an agreement on an available window for the series. This will be the first time the two neighboring countries will face off against each other in a bilateral series. The series was initially scheduled to be played this year but it could not go ahead due to the logistical issues after the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan
Afghanistan will also play two Test series in the next two years. Both the series are scheduled to be played away from home against Zimbabwe and Ireland. Afghanistan is also set to travel to India to play a three-match ODI series in March of next year.
Overall, Afghanistan will play 37 ODIs, 12 T20Is, and 3 Tests in the next two years.
We are pleased to announce our FTP schedule for 2022-23. This includes a total of 37 ODIs, 12 T20Is & 3 tests in the period. Moreover, the national team will be taking part in various ICC & ACC events in two years.
