"We will not discuss regarding this with the media right now," Shetty told IANS.

According to reports, the ACB is hoping that President Ashraf Ghani, during his visit to India next week, would convince his hosts to allot a home ground in India for the Afghanistan cricket team.

The Afghan cricket board has expressed its preference for New Delhi's Feroz Shah Kotla ground. Currently, the Afghanistan team uses the Sharjah ground in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to stage matches.
