Sri Lanka Cricket announces fixtures of three-match ODI series against Afghanistan

Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC), on Tuesday, announced the fixtures of their men’s team’s upcoming ODI series against Afghanistan. By engaging in this three-match ODI leg, the hosts Sri Lanka aim to prioritise their preparations for the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier matches scheduled in Zimbabwe between June and July.

The Afghan team will reach Colombo on May 29 and begin their training session. All the three matches will be played at the MRIC Stadium in Hambantota on June 2, 4 and 7 respectively.

“We are pleased with our communications and the outcome of our negotiations with Sri Lanka Cricket regarding this event,” Naseeb Khan, the ACB CEO said in his official statement. “Aside from a thorough ICC Future Tours Program, the ACB is dedicated to arranging more bilateral series with the other boards. We have our sights set on the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023, and we are working hard to arrange more bilateral cricket for our National team in the buildup for the event.”

In November last year, Afghanistan visited Sri Lanka to compete in a three-match ICC Cricket World Cup Super League ODI rubber against the home team. The series ended in a 1-1 draw with Afghanistan triumphing in the first game by a margin of 60 runs and losing the final match by four wickets. The second ODI was abandoned due to rain.

“Our previous tour to Sri Lanka was an incredible experience in which both countries played competitive cricket, and we are looking forward to engaging in some high-voltage cricket this time as well,” added Khan.
