PCB set to go ahead with Afghanistan series

Pakistan want to replace the three-match ODI series into a three-match T20I series

Unlike Australia, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will not pull out of their white-ball series against Afghanistan. On Monday, PCB’s chairman Najam Sethi insisted that “cricket and politics should be kept separate” will announcing that the tour will go ahead as scheduled. However, there is one chance – instead of a three-match ODI series – the series will be a three-match T20I series. 

"I met with the executive members of Afghanistan Cricket Board and they were asking us to play a (ODI) series but we didn't find any attraction playing the series," Sethi said at a press conference on Monday.

"It's mainly because the series was meant for the [Super League] points, and now no matter who wins it won't make a difference. So, we agreed to play a series of three T20Is in Sharjah just after the PSL subject to government approval. We will share 50% of the revenue from the series equally. And we will jointly outsource the production."

This three-match series was originally scheduled to be played in 2021, in the Middle East but due to circumstances, the series had to be postponed. There stands a chance that the series might coincide with the start of the IPL season, with the series slated to be played between March 20 and 28.
