The three-match series was supposed to start in Hambantota on 3 September but commercial flights have been suspended in Kabul following the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan.

ESPNcricinfo reported that it will remain a home series for Afghanistan.

Also, a 10-day lockdown has been imposed in Sri Lanka due to the rise in COVID-19 cases.

The venues for the series in Pakistan are yet to be announced.

All format Pakistan players including skipper Babar Azam are expected to be rested for the series as part of their workload management ahead of T20 World Cup.
