The Cricket Board of UAE in this regard has sent a letter to the International Cricket Council informing the agreement to host the ACL, the statement said.

According to the Cricket Board of Afghanistaninfo-icon, the Memorandum of Understanding for the Afghan Premier League Twenty20 matches was signed during the month of January this year.

At least five teams will compete during the Afghan Premier League matches from 5th to 23rd October, the Afghanistan Cricket Board said.

A source in the Pakistaninfo-icon Cricket Board (PCB) told Pajhwok Afghan News they were not averse to holding of the ACB T20 event in the UAE, where Pakistan plans to host Australia.

“Our only concern is that dates of APL are clashing with our home series (against the Aussies) which we been organising in the UAE since 2010 due to security issues…” the official said

If the UAE does not respond positively to the PCB request, the Pak-Aussie series will be shifted to Malaysia. The two-day the negotiations are slated for June 26 and 27.
