Just In: Great news for cricket fans in Pakistan as the PCB has agreed to play a Three-Mach T20I series against Afghanistan. According to the official schedule, Men in Green with travel to the United Arab Emirates in the last week of March this year to complete this task.

PCB’s newly appointed Chairman, Najam Sethi, has made this announcement in a press conference stating the board members are willing on the matter; however, the final decision awaits government approval.

It is pertinent to mention that the series between Pakistan and Afghanistan will take place after the conclusion of the eighth season of the Pakistan Super League and before the start of the ODI series against New Zealand in April.

The PCB Chairman also disclosed to the media that both boards agreed to split the profits from the series equally. Of course, the T20I series between Pakistan and Afghanistan expects to earn massive amounts from Media Rights and Tickets Sales.

Men in Green have a busy schedule ahead as they will play eight T20 Internationals right after the conclusion of the Pakistan Super League. If everything works to plan, they will play three T20Is against Afghanistan in late March, followed by 5-match series against New Zealand in April.

Earlier this month, the Australian Board stepped down from the ODI series against Afghanistan in response to the Taliban’s new restrictions on the Women in Country, including Banning Girls from entering Educational Institutes.

It is the second time in two years that Australian Cricket Board withdrew from a bilateral series against Afghanistan due to fierce steps of the Taliban government. Of course, various Afghanistan Cricketers have expressed their disliking of this move by CA.

Shortly after the cancellation of the series, the Afghan Cricket Board contacted Pakistan Cricket Board and requested to host a three-match ODI series in UAE after PSL. Notably, PCB responded positively and agreed to play last March.
