Mumbai: In a significant development, the BCCI has given a green signal to Afghanistan—now under Taliban rule—to host its matches in India after a gap of four years. Afghanistan will thus turn out at Shahid Vijay Singh Pathik Sports Complex in Greater Noida for the first time since March 2020 for a white-ball home series against Bangladesh in July-Aug.
As per the tentative itinerary (TOI has a copy), the series will involve three ODIs and as many T20Is between July 25 and Aug 6. The Bangladesh team is scheduled to arrive in Greater Noida from New Delhi on July 22 and will have a couple of days’ training session before playing its first ODI.
It’s learnt that the BCCI has allotted two ‘home’ venues to Afghanistan—Greater Noida and Kanpur. Back in Dec 2015, the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) and the BCCI had signed a memorandum of understanding to use the Shahid Vijay Singh Pathik Sports Complex in Noida, about 40kms outside Delhi, as their home ground. Thereafter, Afghanistan played their ‘home’ matches in Dehradun, the Ekana Stadium in Lucknow and Greater Noida.
Schedule: July 25: 1st ODI, July 27: 2nd ODI, July 30: 3rd ODI. August 2: 1st T20I, August 4: 2nd T20I, August 6: 3rd T20I.
