The Afghanistan national cricket team visited Zimbabwe in August 2009 to play a first-class designated Inter-Continental Cup match against a Zimbabwe XI.[1] Zimbabwe's participation in the Inter-Continental Cup has been considered a route back to playing Test Cricket. The full national team still participated in One Day Internationals and played a five match ODI series against Bangladesh during the same period.
