India to host 2023 WC, 2021 CT

Where will India slot the Afghanistan Test?

The BCCI and the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) are nearing the end of an agreement to play the historic fixture at Eden Gardens.

"Afghans were scheduled to play their first Test in 2019 versus Australia but considering the historic relationship between India and Afghanistan, we made a decision to host their first Test", Choudhary told reporters.

Afghanistan are all set to make their Test debut with their Asian neighbour India as confirmed by the Board of Control for Cricket in India following the Special Governing Body meeting on Monday.

The funds in a token are used to mine various cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, DASH, Ethereum, Monero, Litecoin, Z-cash, and others. Regardless, the organization has made it known for some time that it will treat non-utility tokens as securities.

Afghanistan's tour will be part of India's home series in the 2018-19 calendar and shows the growing bond between not just the two countries but the two cricketing boards as well.

A detailed schedule chalked out and presented at the Special General Meeting of the BCCI in New Delhi on Monday (December 11) entails 81 worldwide games across formats at home in that four-year cycle, as against the proposed 85-match schedule presented to the members before the meeting. In their first five years Bangladesh played 40 Tests while Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe played 24 Tests each. Considering their muscle in world cricket matters, the BCCI and Indian cricket have the power to propel cricket into becoming a global sport, not just monopolised by a select few in the Commonwealth. We are aware that fans from both the nations are eagerly waiting for the historic clash. "The BCCI will work with the Afghanistan Cricket Board and announce the details shortly".

Ireland and Afghanistan, along with Zimbabwe, are not part of the Test Championship league, which will commence immediately after the 2019 World Cup. Also, BCCI has played a huge role in their upbringing by providing them with a cricket ground in Noida for training. Our position is that PCB's agreement to the revised structures for global cricket is subject to the condition that PCB has a valid agreement to play bilateral matches with India and India vs Pakistan matches would be included in the FTP. The matches will be played after Ireland host Pakistan. In between the Australia and South Africa home fixtures, India is scheduled to tour New Zealand (2 Tests, 3 ODIs, 5 T20Is).
