The three-match 50-overs series between Afghanistan and the Pakistan A side will begin on May 25 in Faisalabad, the PCB has announced. The second and third games, on May 27 and 29, will take place in Rawalpindi and Abbottabad - which was in the news recently with regards to Osama bin Laden's killing.

Afghanistan will be the first international side to tour Pakistan since the Lahore attacks on Sri Lanka's cricketers and support staff in March 2009. They will also take part in a domestic competition in Peshawar. Later, the Pakistan A side will travel to Afghanistan for a return series, and will play the inaugural match in Nangarhar.
