Four teams have reportedly qualified for the first round of Afghanistan's Inter Provincial 25-over tournament in Jalabad - Laghman, Wardak, Parwan and Herat.
Two games each day are being played on cement pitches in Jalalabad in the qualifying event for Afghanistan's main tournament to be played in May.
The majority of the teams are from the traditional heartland of Afghan cricket, the east, although it is understood teams from Herat in the west, and Helmand have also taken part.
Results of matches will appear once they are confirmed by the Afghanistan Cricket Federation.

Assistant editor Sahil Dutta grew up supporting England during the 90s. Despite this, he still enjoys the game. His unrequited passions for Graeme Hick and, in latter years, Vikram Solanki gave him a stoicism that guided him through an Economics degree and a stint working at the European Parliament. He maintains the purest love for Tests and the whims of legspin bowling and still harbours hope that he could be the answer to England's long search for a mystery spinner. As it is, his most exciting cricketing experience was planning a trip to Australia for the 2006-07 Ashes with two utterly indifferent friends. Unfortunately his lung collapsed shortly before his planned departure and the pair were left to wander around from Test to Test, unprepared and clueless. Any comparisons with England are far too obvious to make. That cancelled holiday inspired an Ashes blog which led, via some tea-making at the Wisden Cricketer, to the ESPNcricinfo towers.
