The Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) requested the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to play a series other than the predetermined ICC Super League matches between the two nations after Australia opted to cancel its series with the Afghan team.
The PCB has received a request from the ACB to play three ODIs in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in March of this year, according to local media reports.
After Australia withdrew from the series that was supposed to be played in March, “they have approached us to play three ODIs,” the reports citing a source stated.
The reports further said, “We are evaluating ways to find a week’s opening after PSL and before our home series against New Zealand,” while also reiterating that, if the series does go to a place, it will be held in the United Arab Emirates.
However, these three One-Day Internationals would not be the ICC World Cup Super Series games between the two nations that were originally planned to be played in August.
Australia had previously cancelled its series against Afghanistan after the Taliban regime imposed restrictions on women’s sports participation.
