Afghanistan’s match in Abbottabad moved to Islamabad
ISLAMABAD: The third one-dayer between Afghanistan and Pakistan A has been moved from Abbottabad to Islamabad. Abbottabad, a regular venue for first-class matches in Pakistan, attained international significance on May 2, following a US military operation in the town that culminated in the killing of Osama bin Laden. “The itinerary has been revised and now the Abbottabad match will be played in Islamabad on May 25,” a Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) spokesman said. No official reason was given for the decision which was taken at a meeting on Thursday between PCB chairman Ijaz Butt and interior minister Rahman Malik.
