Pak-Afghan ODI series to be held in Pakistan
The event was scheduled to be held in Sri Lanka where authorities had imposed lockdown in wake of a steep surge in coronavirus cases last week.
The cricket series was in doubt due to the uncertainty in the war-torn country following the Taliban takeover.
However, according to sources, the Taliban told the Afghanistan Cricket Board to carry on activities as usual.
Islamabad had issued visas to Afghan cricketers and Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry expressed hope the sportspersons from Afghanistan would bring "smiles to the faces of their people".
