Afghanistan To Play Test Against West Indies In India
Afghanistan will play West Indies for test and a short series in November in their adopted home India, the Afghanistan Cricket Board has (ACB) said in a statement.
“Afghanistan National team is scheduled to host West Indies for a tour from 5th November till 1st December in India,” the ACB said. “The series will include three T20Is, three ODIs and a one-off Test match.”
Afghanistan and the West Indies have played only 10 internationals between them, eight of those held in the Caribbean.
The West Indies lead Afghanistan 5-4 in the head-to-head, their most recent victory coming in the ongoing World Cup.
The one-off Test will mark Afghanistan’s third appearance in the longest format. They were beaten on debut by India last year but defeated Ireland by 7 wickets in March at Dehradun.
