Plan B for Afghanistan: Travel to Sri Lanka via Pakistan and Dubai

The Afghanistan contingent might have to take a circuitous route to get to Sri Lanka for their scheduled three-match ODI series against Pakistan, to be played in Hambantota, because of the political turmoil in their country. No commercial flights are taking off from Kabul following the Taliban takeover of the country, and as ESPNcricinfo understands, a contingency plan worked out by the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) is to get Pakistan visas for all the players and support staff, get them to fly to Pakistan first, then to Dubai, and then on to Colombo for the series.
