New Delhi, Dec.10 : The Board of Control for Cricket in India on Thursday signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Afghanistan Cricket Board in order to help the latter with a ‘home’ ground in India.
The newly-constructed Shaheed Vijay Singh Pathik Sports Complex in Greater Noida is widely seen as a potential venue for Afghanistan cricketers to play their international matches.
“The ICC has inspected the ground and found it eligible to host matches of the associate-affiliate teams, Under-19, and A sides. However, it needs to meet a few more requirements for hosting an ICC-event match,” BCCI honorary secretary Anurag Thakur told reporters here.
“Greater Noida authorities have ensured us that they will deliver in quick-time so that Afghanistan cricket board can host their future international matches at this ground in Noida,” he added.
Thakur asserted that the agreement would not only strengthen the cricketing ties between the two nations but also improve their political relations. (ANI)
