Sri Lanka to support Afghanistan cricket development.
Sri Lanka has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Afghanistan Cricket Board to support the development of cricket in Afghanistan.
The two countries signed four MOUs, including a "Memorandum of Understanding in the Field of Sports" by the Sri Lankan Minister of Sports Mahindananda Aluthgamage, and by Afghanistan's Minister of Labour, Social Affairs, Martyrs and Disabled Amina Safi Afzali.
Afghanistan cricket has improved significantly over the last couple of years. Apart from securing berths in the 2015 World Cup and the upcoming 2014 World T20, Afghanistan also put up a spirited performance in the recently concluded Asia Cup, where they pulled off an upset against the hosts Bangladesh.
