Sri Lanka visits Pakistan
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Saturday announced the itinerary for a full series against Sri Lanka that will be played mainly in neutral venues but features a planned finale in Lahore on October 29.
The series will comprise two Tests — the second a day-night affair — five one-day and three Twenty20 internationals.
The PCB hopes to host the last Twenty20 in Lahore, depending on whether a three-match series against a World XI team next week passes off without incident.
PCB director Haroon Rasheed said he hoped the match would be held as planned. “We have scheduled the last Twenty20 in Lahore with high hopes and it will follow our series with World XI,” Rasheed was quted as saying.
Pakistan have been forced to play their home international games in the UAE since a 2009 terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in Lahore suspended all international matches in the country.
