Zimbabwe will host Afghanistan in Bulawayo later this month for a tour that comprises five ODIs and two T20Is. Afghanistan are expected to arrive in Bulawayo on October 13. It will be their second tour of Zimbabwe after they played four ODIs and two four-day games there last year, the series ending deadlocked at 2-2 and 1-1.
“As we push through our commitment to have our national side play as many international games as possible, we are pleased to have Afghanistan touring, just a few days after we will have played host to Ireland in the latest of a busy season that has also seen India, New Zealand and Pakistan in Zimbabwe,” Tavengwa Mukuhlani, the Zimbabwe Cricket chairman, said.
“The last time Afghanistan were here, they were no pushovers and we shared the spoils in the hard-fought series. This time around, we hope for victory so that we repay the thousands of cricket lovers who always turn up at Queens in support of Zimbabwe.”
All games will be played at the Queens Sports Club in Bulawayo.
