Afghanistan-Pakistan ODI series postponed

·1-min read

Afghanistan's three-match one-day international series against Pakistan has been postponed.

The series was scheduled to be played in Sri Lanka in early September.

The Afghan cricket team had planned to travel to Pakistan by road and then fly out to Sri Lanka via Dubai.

But the series has been postponed following the collapse of Afghanistan's government and Taliban takeover.

The Pakistan Cricket Board said an increase in COVID-19 cases in Sri Lanka and the "players' mental health issues" were other reasons for the decision.

Sri Lanka last week announced a 10-day lockdown due to the increase in COVID-19 cases.

They hoped to re-schedule the ODI series for 2022.
