Afghanistan will tour Zimbabwe for five ODIs and two Twenty20 Internationals later this month.
Afghanistan, who are expected to arrive in Bulawayo on October 13, played four ODIs against Zimbabwe last year, but the trophy was shared after the series ended as a 2-2 draw.
“As we push through our commitment to have our national side play as many international games as possible, we are pleased to have Afghanistan touring, just a few days after we will have played host to Ireland in the latest of a busy season that has also seen India, New Zealand and Pakistan in Zimbabwe,” Zimbabwe Cricket chairman Tavengwa Mukuhlani said. “The last time Afghanistan were here, they were no pushovers and we shared the spoils in the hard-fought series. This time around, we hope for victory so that we repay the thousands of cricket lovers who always turn up at Queens in support of Zimbabwe.”
All five ODIs and the two Twenty20 Internationals will be played in Bulawayo.
