Pak vs Afg: Pakistan issues visas to Afghanistan cricketers for ODI series

ISLAMABAD: The three-match ODI series between Pakistan and Afghanistan is back on track as Islamabad has issued visas to Afghan cricketers. 

Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry Sunday took to Twitter to wish the Afghan cricketers, saying that he hoped they will bring “smiles to the faces of their people”. 

The Afghan cricketers are expected to arrive in Pakistan either by Monday or Tuesday, as per a report. 

“Yes, the entire Afghan cricket contingent has been granted visas by Pakistan and they are expected to cross the border into Pakistan anytime on Monday or Tuesday,” a source told The News.

The cricket series was in doubt due to the uncertainty in the war-torn country following the Taliban takeover last week.
