Afghanistan will play a three-match ODI series against India away from home in March 2022, the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) announced on Monday, December 13.

This series will be the first bilateral ODI series between the two sides. India and Afghanistan have so far competed in three ODI matches – two in Asia Cup and one in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup. India won on two occasions while one match ended in a tie.

Afghanistan will kickstart the year 2022 with an ODI leg against the Netherlands and end it with a three-format series versus Zimbabwe.

“If we bifurcate the tally into limited-overs cricket and the test format, it clearly shows that Afghanistan’s focus will be on the shorter formats of the game,” ACB said in a press release.

“Considering the fact that Afghanistan will be playing 7 ODI series in the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League, as well as will participate in four major limited-overs events such as Asia Cup 2022 (T20 format), ICC T20 World Cup 2022, the Asia Cup 2023 (ODI format) & the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023,” ACB added.
