BCCI: India to host Afghanistan's maiden Test from June 14-18 in Bengaluru
New Delhi, Jan 16 (Cricketnmore) - India will host Afghanistan in their debut Test from June 14-18 in Bengaluru, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced here on Tuesday.
The BCCI announced the decision after a meeting with officials from the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) here.
BCCI acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary said that several factors had been taken into consideration before deciding the venue for the historic match.
"There will be rains almost everywhere in India at that time of the year. The regions which will not have rain will be so hot that playing cricket will be practically impossible during the day time hours. Considering all factors, Bengaluru was the best choice," Choudhary told reporters.
