Islamabad:

The city where Osama bin Laden was killed will host a one-day cricket match between Afghanistan and Pakistan's second-string team.

The Pakistan Cricket Board says the one-dayer will be played in Abbottabad on May 29.

Afghanistan will be the first foreign cricket team to tour Pakistan since gunmen attacked the Sri Lanka team bus in Lahore in 2009 and killed six police officials and a van driver.

The PCB finalized the three-match, one-day series last week after meeting with Afghanistan Cricket Board officials, but only revealed the itinerary on Monday.

Faisalabad will host the lone day-night match on May 25, while Rawalpindi (May 27) and Abbottabad will organize the remaining two matches.
