Australia have confirmed they will play a one-off game against Afghanistan in the Middle East in August.
Australia will use the match as a warm-up to their series against Pakistan series, which immediately precedes the ICC World Twenty20 tournament in Sri Lanka.
Cricket Australia chief executive James Sutherland said Australia had been looking for a chance to play Afghanistan for some time.
"Everyone in world cricket have been really impressed with how cricket has flourished in Afghanistan, despite its pressing national problems," he said.
"As an ICC member, CA strongly supports world cricket's ambition for cricket to continue to develop as a global sport and that, combined with the strong relationships between our two countries, encouraged us to look at how we might recognise and encourage Afghanistan by playing them on the field."
Sutherland said the details of the Afghanistan fixture had been finalised during discussions at the ICC Annual Conference in Kuala Lumpur.
