Afghanistan and Pakistan are all set to play each other in two T20 friendly ties in July-August. The decision was taken following a meeting between Afghanistan Cricket Board chairman Atif Mashal and Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Shaharyar Khan in Lahore on Saturday (May 27).
While one T20 will be played in Kabul, the second one will be hosted by Pakistan in Lahore. The two teams will also play a bilateral series, with the dates of that contest yet to be fixed. “The relationship between the two boards and the two nations is historic. It is not new,” Mashal said following the meeting. “I am here to renew our commitment and sports should not be influenced by the politics of two governments. I am happy to have great discussion with Pakistan Cricket Board and agreed on various plans.
