Afghanistan's U-19 team to tour Bangladesh in September

Afghanistan's U-19 team will play five one-day matches and a lone four-day match in Bangladesh between September 10-25

Afghanistan's U-19 side is set to become the first cricket team to play an international match since the Taliban occupation of the country after the  Bangladesh Cricket Board on Friday announced a revised scheduled for their five one-dayers and a four-day game.

According to BCB's itinerary for 24 days, the youth ODI series will be played on September 10-17 at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium with lone four-day match set to be played between September 22-25 at the same venue.

The Afghan side will spend three days in quarantine after arriving in Sylhet on September 4 and have been allocated two days for practice before the series begins.

Earlier this month, Afghanistan's tour of neighboring Pakistan was postponed while most of the senior team players have opted out of the Caribbean Premier League. On Thursday, the Taliban and Cricket Australia were positive of their maiden Test match against Australia going ahead as planned in November.
