AFGHANISTAN have settled for Oman as their venue for a planned series against Zimbabwe next month after approval by the International Cricket Council (ICC).

Oman is a small country on the south-eastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula in Western Asia.

The series will be played at the Oman Cricket Academy Ground 1.

Afghanistan have been unable to host international cricket within their own borders due to security concerns. Between 2010 and 2016, Afghanistan played all their “home” internationals in Sharjah, UAE.

Since ascending to full membership, Afghanistan have played home games at various venues in India. With the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic in India, the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) has sought new “home venues”, including a return to the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
