The Indian team will play a three-match ODI series against Afghanistan in March. The Afghanistan Cricket Board announced this on Monday. A total of 11 ODIs, four T20s and two Test series have been included in the Future Tour Program (FTP) released for 2022-23. All these series will be played over the next two years.
Apart from India, Afghanistan also has to play the Netherlands, Zimbabwe, Australia and Ireland. 18 matches will be played on home soil and 34 matches will be played abroad. Apart from this, Afghanistan will also show strength in Asia Cup 2022, World T20 2022, Asia Cup 2023 and 2023 World Cup.
Young Indian players will get a chance
Team India is playing cricket continuously. In such a situation, it is equally important to give rest to the players. If experts are to be believed, India can field its B team against Afghanistan. Players performing well in domestic cricket can get a chance. Just like what happened in Sri Lanka.
