As the five-match T20I series between Afghanistan and Zimbabwe scheduled to be hosted by the latter in August is called-off by Cricket Zimbabwe.
As the five-match T20I series between Afghanistan and Zimbabwe scheduled to be hosted by the latter in August is called-off by Cricket Zimbabwe, ACB understands that under the current situation where the COVID-19 pandemic still poses a grave threat to the health and safety of everyone concerned, it is not currently feasible for the series to be held.
ACB has always been strongly adherant to the health and safety guidelines in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak throughout the globe which also laid an impact on cricketing calender including the 2020 T20 World Cup.
ACB, therefore, respects and conforms to Cricket Zimbabwe’s decision in this regard and cites it as a fair decision under the relevant circumstances and looks forward to bilateral cricket between both sides in future. As ACB and Cricket Zimbabwe share a good history of bilateral cricket, the possibility of a series between the National teams of both countries will be discussed again once the threat of COVID-19 is tackled effectively.
