Afghan national team is set to travel to UAE today where they will play a three-match ODI series against Ireland later this month as part of the ICC ODI league.
The national team, therefore, will not travel to Oman, where they were scheduled to hold the series due to UAE Visa restrictions earlier.
As part of the ICC ODI league matches, the series between both teams was initially scheduled to be hosted at UAE. However, due to visa restrictions by UAE in the wake of COVID-19, ACB planned to have Oman as the alternate venue. Fortunately, the UAE Authorities granted visas to Afghan players and relevant officials later last night and the decision was taken to reschedule the series in UAE.
Afghanistan Cricket Board had applied for UAE visas in late November, which was delayed due to reasons mentioned above.
Consequently, the hurdles may result in the series being postponed by three to four days than originally scheduled.
