Shinwari, the Afghanistan Cricket Board's CEO, has stated that the Afghan team may tour India for a series in 2022, but this has yet to be finalized.The Taliban have authorized Afghanistan's cricket team to play worldwide matches after seizing control of Kabul, stating that the Afghan squad can compete among other international teams, claims the Afghanistan Cricket Board's chief executive officer Hamid Shinwari. As per France 24, Shinwari told to AFP that "We have got approval to send the team to Australia."

The Indian Express reports that the Test against Australia will occur in Hobart from November 27 to December 1. It was earlier planned to happen in 2020, but it was postponed due to the pandemic and travel limitations.

For a brief series, Afghanistan's under-19 team arrived in Bangladesh on September 04, 2021, making them the first Afghan cricket team to play abroad since the Taliban took control. Between September 10 and 25, they will play five one-day matches and a four-day match against Bangladesh's under-19 squad at the Sylhet International Stadium reports NDTV.

Shinwari, who spoke to the Indian Express, said the team could visit India for a Test series in 2022. Shinwari said, "The Taliban government has been supporting cricket and all our cricket will be held as per schedule. A spokesperson of the Taliban Cultural Commission communicated to us that Taliban will be supporting the Test match against Australia followed by a Test series against India in the first quarter of 2022."

The Afghanistan Cricket Board's CEO has stated that their national team may visit India for a Test series in early 2022. However, neither the Afghanistan Cricket Board nor the Board of Control for Cricket in India has made formal remarks on the upcoming cricket matches between Afghanistan and India. As a result, the claim cannot be verified at the current time.
