Afghanistan to play in Asia Cup 2018

Afghanistan will not have to play in the qualifier tournament and will join other Asian Test playing nations to play directly in Asia Cup 2018

A committee assigned in the last Annual General Meeting of the Asian Cricket Council in Colombo, which was also attended by Afghanistan Cricket Board Officials, has decided that Afghanistan will play in Asia Cup 2018 without going through the qualifier tournament. The decision was taken in light of Afghanistan’s Full Member status of ICC.

Asia Cup 2018 is provisionally scheduled to take place in September 2018 in India and the tournament will be 50-over competition.
