The Pakistani authorities have said a series of cricket matches proposed to the Afghan authorities has been postponed due to the security concerns.
According to the officials in Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) quoted in by local media, the decision to postpone the series has been taken following a deadly attack in Lahore last week.
The Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) has not commented regarding the proposed series and postponement of the series so far.
However, the PCB authorities have said negotiations regarding the series of 3 One Day Internationals (ODIs) concluded earlier and they were waiting for security clearance for the matches.
The officials have further added that a decision will be taken regarding the series once the security situation improves.
This comes as the head coach of the Afghanistan national cricket team Inzamam-ul-Haq said late in December last year that the Afghan team should get to play against top teams on regular basis, insisting that the Afghan team needs exposure against the big teams.
The proposed series against Pakistan was the second series against a top team following Zimbabwe which the Afghan team sealed victory against last year.
The Afghan team participated in ODI and T20 series against Zimbabwe for two times last year and secured back to back victories in both series.
