Afghanistan will be hosting Bangladesh for a limited-overs series against Bangladesh in July. The series is scheduled to be played at the Shahid Vijay Singh Pathik Sports Complex in Greater Noida.

According to a report in Sportstar, the teams are scheduled to play three ODIs and as many T20Is against each other in the forthcoming series. The series will be taking place from July 25 to August 6. Bangladesh will be arriving in Greater Noida via New Delhi on July 22 and will train for two days before the first ODI takes place.

The venue in Greater Noida will be hosting an international game for the first time since 2020. Not very long ago, it was the home base for Afghanistan but in recent times, they have played their home games in the United Arab Emirates. However, the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) officials met the BCCI officials during the ODI World Cup last year and expressed their desire to play the home games in India again.

"We have closely worked with the BCCI to resume our hosting agreement, making this series possible after a long break," ACB CEO Naseeb Khan told Sportstar.

"The BCCI has allotted us two grounds - one in Kanpur and the other in Greater Noida. Since we have played at Greater Noida in the past, we decided to host the series against Bangladesh there," Khan added.
