Afghanistan vs Zimbabwe 1st Test Live Telecast Channel: The SportsRush presents before you the timing and live streaming details of the first AFG vs ZIM Test.
The first Test of the imminent Zimbabwe’s tour of United Arab Emirates will commence from tomorrow between Afghanistan and Zimbabwe at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
Having last hosted a Test match between Pakistan and New Zealand in 2018, the venue will host its first Test after more than two years. It is worth mentioning that it will also be the first-ever Test match between these two teams.
While Zimbabwe had already traveled to the UAE with a slightly depleted squad, Afghanistan have also received a blow in the form of spinner Rashid Khan getting out of the match due to a finger injury.

As has been the case during the ongoing international summer season in New Zealand, Zimbabwe’s tour of UAE will also not be available on television channels in India.
Just as the case for international cricket in New Zealand, speculations were rife that streaming platform Fan Code is in line to stream the two-match Test series on its website and application.
A tweet by Afghanistan Cricket Board regarding the official broadcasters has confirmed the same despite no subscription option on Fan Code till now. In what might be a rare case, there can be a possibility of fans getting to follow the Test on Fan Code free of cost.
