Afghanistan U-19 reached Bangladesh
Afghanistan U-19 landed in Bangladesh today to play a five-match one-day series which will be followed by a four-day game. The series itinerary was rescheduled but despite the Taliban insurgency in Afghanistan, will go ahead as planned with all the matches taking place in Sylhet.
The visitors arrived in Dhaka in two batches. The players will be transferred to Sylhet by September 5 before their first practice session on September 8 at Sylhet International Cricket Stadium.
This will be Bangladesh U-19s' first assignment since the Akbar Ali-led side won the Under-19 World Cup by beating India in Potchefstroom in February 2020. The one-day series will take place from September 10 till 19 before the four-dayer from September 22.
