Afghanistan to tour Zimbabwe next month
Afghanistan Cricket Board (ABC) spokesman Farid Hotak told Pajhwok Afghan News the tour was the result of lengthy negotiations with Zimbabwean officials.
The two sides will play four one-day internationals and two four-day matches. Zimbabwe will host the series starting from July 18.
ACB Chief Executive Noor Mohammad Murad believed the series would help the Afghan side in terms of experience and exposure.
Pleased with the prospects of Afghanistan squaring off against Zimbabwe, he said the series would come handy in preparing the national squad for the World Cup.
Prior to the tour, Afghanistan competed against the Zimbabwe-A team three years ago during the Inter-Continental Cup.
