There has been a delay in the arrival of Afghanistan’s U19 team in West Indies for the World Cup due to visa related issues. The ICC in a statement has said that the body is making the attempts to resolve the problems.

"We have been working together with the Afghanistan Cricket Board and relevant stakeholders to try and find a resolution to the problem and allow the team to travel," ICC Head of Events, Chris Tetley said.

"In the meantime, we have rescheduled the warm-up fixtures to ensure the teams in the region are able to continue their preparation ahead of the start of the tournament on 14 January."

Afghanistan were scheduled to play England on January 10, 2022 at Warner Park and were then slated to play the UAE at St Paul's on Wednesday (January 12). The England UAE sides will now play each other on January 11, 2022 at Conaree Cricket Centre.
