Sri Lanka host Afghanistan for ODIs | Cricket News


NEW DELHI: Afghanistan will travel to Sri Lanka for three ODIs in November, soon after the T20 World Cup ends in Australia, the island nation’s cricket board said on Monday.
The minnows of cricket in Asia, Afghanistan “will arrive in Sri Lanka on November 22”, Sri Lanka Cricket said in a statement.
The series was initially scheduled for February 2023 but “has been moved to the new schedule as the international cricket calendars of the two nations made the change possible”, it added.
The teams will play three matches on November 25, 27 and 30 in the city of Kandy.
Sri Lanka were surprise Asia Cup winners in September after defeating arch-rivals Pakistan and India in the Twenty20 format.
Afghanistan have also produced exciting performances in the shortest format of the game in the last few months with some young and exciting cricketers.
The ODI series is seen as preparation for the World Cup in the longer white-ball format, which will be hosted by powerhouse India in 2023.
