AT News Report

KABUL: The national cricket team left Kabul for the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Saturday to attend a series of ODI matches and hold practice sessions as part of preparations for the Cricket World Cup 2015.
In this One Day International (ODI) series, Afghanistan will play a total of four matches against Scotland and Ireland after attending tough training sessions in Dubai, said the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) spokesman, Mohammad Farid Hotak.
He told Afghanistan Times that it would be the last practice of Afghan cricketers for the World Cup. He said the ACB hopes the national players would once again shine in the upcoming event and bring more pride to the nation.
Cricketer Hamid Hassan who is part of the 15-men nation squad for the World Cup 2015, said the series of matches is a good opportunity for Afghan squad to get familiar with Scottish team that would also meet the team in the World Cup.
The ACB earlier announced the national squad along with the four substitute players to appear for the first time in the World Cup which will be co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand. The ICC World Cup commences on February 14, 2015, with Afghanistan featuring in its first game against Bangladesh on Feb. 18 at Canberra.
