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.
