Afghanistan’s three-match ODI collection towards Pakistan has been moved from Sri Lanka’s Hambantota to Pakistan due to logistical challenges within the Afghanistan group’s journey. The Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) CEO Hamid Shinwari confirmed the shift of the ODI collection to ESPNcricinfo. No business flights are taking off from Kabul following the Taliban takeover of the nation and Sri Lanka introduced a 10-day lockdown on Friday, two days after the nation reported 3,793 new instances and a highest-ever single-day demise toll of 187.
All three matches within the collection between Afghanistan and Pakistan had been to be performed in Hambantota and concerned a three-day quarantine interval on arrival for either side.
Afghanistan group will now journey to Pakistan later this week and the ACB is but to announce the venue(s) for the ODIs beginning September 3.
On Sunday, Azizullah Fazli was reappointed as the brand new chairman of the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB). Fazli has already served one time period as ACB chairman, from his appointment in September 2018 – following the resignation of Atif Mashal – till July 2019, when he was changed by Farhan Yusufzai following Afghanistan’s bottom-placed end on the 2019 World Cup in England.
His appointment got here every week after the Taliban seized management over Kabul and the collapse of the federal government with President Ashraf Ghani fleeing the nation.
