BCCI acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary had said Bengaluru emerged as the best-possible venue for the historic match. <p></p> <p></p>For the venue at Greater Noida, a working agreement between the stakeholders saw the Under-19 cricket teams of Afghanistan and Zimbabwe play their first one-day match on December 13 there. <p></p> <p></p>Dehradun houses the Rajiv Gandhi International cricket stadium, a multi-purpose facility and the state's only international level stadium.
