The Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) and Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) have always enjoyed a great relationship. India, being the cricketing giant, has contributed massively in the growth of Afghan cricket and has provided them with great technical support.
The Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) has now decided that the Afghanistan team will be offered the Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow to hold their international matches — Tests, ODIs and T20s. Previously, the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Dehradun served as the home of Afghanistan.
Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) CEO Asadullah Khan confirmed the development to a news agency. “We have received formal approval of our request from the BCCI. Dehradun did not have enough five-star accommodations which was proving to be a hurdle in organising international games. Now we should have no more problems in this regard at Lucknow,” Khan was quoted as saying.
