Afghanistan’s Cricket Board (ACB) on Thursday announced the squad for this month’s series against Ireland in India.
The series will consist of three T20Is, five ODIs and the first ever Test between both teams. It will start on Thursday, February 28 at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium, in Hyderabad in India.
The Afghan team played at this particular venue last year in a three-match T20I series against Bangladesh.
Hosts, Afghanistan, managed to comprehensively whitewash Bangladesh 3-0.
In 2017, Ireland also played Afghanistan – but that was at the Greater Noida Sports Complex Ground in Greater Noida, in India.
