Afghanistan will host home matches in the UAE
There is still unrest inside Afghanistan – the political situation within the state does not allow its team to play home matches in front of their fans. In this regard, the Afghan squad had to look for a new venue for meetings. And the Emirates came to the rescue of the Afghan national team: Afghanistan will host home matches in the UAE in the next five years.
Representatives of the UAE Cricket Council note that close cooperation with Afghanistan allows the United Arab Emirates national club to progress.
“We want to support ACB – every unit should have the opportunity to play home matches. We also appreciate ACC for agreeing to host a series of T20 matches against the UAE — this gives us invaluable knowledge,” stated Mubashshir Usmani, Secretary General of the UAE Cricket Council.
Usmani noted that the UAE will continue to provide logistical support to ACB, which will help Afghanistan stay afloat in difficult times.
