Revised Schedule for Pakistan and Afghanistan T20I Series

Pakistan and Afghanistan to play three T20Is

The schedule for the three-match T20I series between Pakistan and Afghanistan has been revised. Originally, the matches were planned to take place on March 25, 27, and 29 at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. However, they will now be played on March 24, 26, and 27 instead.

In a statement, the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) and Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) jointly agreed to make slight modifications to the itinerary for Afghanistan’s home T20I series against Pakistan. The series will now start on March 24, with the last two games being played on March 26 and 27 in Sharjah, UAE.

According to the statement released by the ACB, the changes in the itinerary were made due to the unavailability of Hawk-Eye Technology for the previously agreed-upon dates. To ensure that all the necessary broadcast technologies are available for the inaugural T20I series between the two sides, the two boards have agreed upon the changes in itinerary.

Initially, both teams were supposed to play a three-match ODI series this year instead of T20Is. However, since Pakistan and Afghanistan have already qualified for the 2023 ODI World Cup in India, the format was changed after a meeting between PCB officials and ACB officials.

During a press conference in January, Sethi said that he met with the executive members of the Afghanistan Cricket Board and they were asking for an ODI series. However, he explained that they didn’t find any attraction in playing the series since it was meant for the Super League points, and now, regardless of who wins, it won’t make a difference. As a result, they agreed to play a series of three T20Is in Sharjah just after the PSL, subject to government approval. The revenue from the series will be shared equally, and the production will be outsourced jointly.

The revised schedule for the Pakistan and Afghanistan series is as follows:

March 24: 1st T20I, Sharjah

March 26: 2nd T20I, Sharjah

March 27: 3rd T20I, Sharjah
