The ICC has confirmed that the ICC Intercontinental Cup match between Afghanistan and Ireland, due to be played in Dambulla, Sri Lanka, has been moved forward by two days. It will now be played from January 21 to 24 at the same venue.

With presidential elections due to take place on January 26, which had originally been scheduled as the final day of the game, Sri Lanka Cricket requested the move for reasons of security and logistics.

    Asian teams (Pakistan, India, Srilanka, Bangladish) Should suport the Afghanistan Team and must play more maches with the Afghan side, i think ACC must have to play important roll in this regard.

  • san on January 22, 2010, 8:28 GMT

    yes indeed crickinfo does the best in giving us all latest on all countries all times, live or almost live updates, etc. thank you crickinfo.

    Now I sincerely hope both afgan and Irish teams will get to leave Dambulla, srilanka in onepiece safely as that region of srilanka is in the midst of machetes and gun trotting political thugs and gangs of opposing presidental candidates who have already killed and injured several of each others in the last three or four days alone in and arond that north central srilanka region. Hope all will be safe in the next few days, as UN called it[ two days ago] that the worse violent election campaign in srilanka in decades. hope all will be safe as the election is on 26th. hence,24, 25, 26 , 27, 28 etc are bad days.
