Original plan was Afghanistan’s debut game way back in 2019 vs Australia but I think since icc granted Ireland/ Pakistan Test in May 2018: India temped to host Afghanistan as they have good relationship.

India vs Afghanistan Test venue will be in India.yesterday (Virat married with Anushka Sharma in Italy),most probably after southafrica series and before IPL 2018 one test might stage

Afghanistan’s fine keeper batsman, Mohamad Shahzad suspended for doping charges by ICC FROM JANUARY 17 2017 till jan 17:2018,who played 58/58 ODI /T20 for Afghanistan.

He admitted he taking drugs to reduced his weight but not aware of the substances which is prohibited.

Not true because BCCI way ahead in test ranking, Pakistan is only nation who care about ranking,they are number 1 in T20i ranking as of today

They have to play 3 t20i vs NZ in NZ on dec 22/26 and 28,they aware NZ #2 ranking team so now they invited WI for 3 T20I in Pakistan to regains their number one status
,
Presently Pakistan 120i ( number 1) points in 52 games vs NZ 116 ( number 2) points in only 43 games

Whether rankings booster or not, looks like a stats booster for BCCI players.

Needless to mention, I'll be supporting Afghanistan. :grin:
