Islamabad, Mar 27: Pakistan has agreed to hold its home limited-overs series against Australia this August in Sri Lanka.
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Director Intikhab Alam and Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) Secretary Nishantha Ranatunga confirmed the news.
Cricket Australia’s (CA) stand has not been made public, and the Memorandum of Understanding has not yet been signed yet.
Reports suggest that Alam will travel to Sri Lanka next week to finalise arrangements.
“Sri Lanka Cricket had expressed the desire to host the series to the PCB a month ago and both boards have no problems with it. I do not know about the stand of the other cricket board CA yet,” the Daily Times quoted Ranatunga, as saying on a website.
Alam revealed that South Africa and Australia were the other two nations being considered as venues for the series, but Sri Lanka was selected for commercial and cricketing reasons.
Pakistan and Australia will play five ODIs and three Twenty20 internationals against each other. (ANI)
