PCB Yet Again Proves Why It’s Afghanistan Cricket’s Best Friend

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has confirmed the three-match T20I series against Afghanistan in United Arab Emirates (UAE) in late March this year.

The series will take place in the window between the upcoming eighth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) and the white-ball series against New Zealand.

The final match of the marquee event is slated to take place on March 19 in Lahore while the New Zealand series will start on April 13 with the first T20I in Karachi.

The series between the neighboring countries will be played with the aim to compensate Afghanistan following Cricket Australia’s (CA) withdrawal from the series.

While making the announcement, PCB Chairman, Najam Sethi took to Twitter to say that the PCB has also expressed its support for the Asian Cricket Council’s (ACC) decision to grant Afghanistan an equal share of ACC revenues.

Last month, Cricket Australia withdrew from the ODI series against Afghanistan in response to the Taliban’s recent announcement of the ban on girls from entering educational institutions.

It was the second time in the last two years that the cricket authority in Australia canceled a bilateral series against Afghanistan due to the Taliban government.

Following the CA decision, the Afghanistan Cricket Board expressed willingness to host a three-match ODI series against Pakistan in the UAE.
