The Australian cricket team was scheduled to play a three-match ODI series against Afghanistan before the T20 World Cup. However, the series has been postponed.
"The Afghanistan Cricket Board and Cricket Australia have agreed to suspend the series," the Afghanistan Cricket Board said in a statement on Sunday. The relocation of the T20 World Cup to the United Arab Emirates has created complications with travel, quarantine deadlines and match venues. That's why the series has been postponed for now.
