Afghanistan could play their maiden Test match later this year as they are currently in talks with Zimbabwe about a full series.

It is understood that the series, which is likely to consist of one Test, five ODIs and two or three Twenty20 Internationals, will be held in India or the United Arab Emirates.

Reports suggest that Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) are on board with the series after they emailed the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) last week.

Once Zimbabwe confirms the dates of the scheduled tri-series in Bangladesh, which is set to take place in January to February next year, they will decide when to play Afghanistan.

Should the series be given the green light, it will be a historic moment for Afghanistan as they and Ireland were given Test status back in June. Furthermore, Afghanistan recently travelled to the Caribbean, where they held the West Indies to a 1-1 draw in a three-match ODI series.
