The Pakistan Cricket Board has announced that they will be hosting Sri Lanka in three ODIs and three T20Is to be played from September 27 to October 9, with the World Test Championship matches moved to December.

The three ODIs will take place in Karachi on September 27, September 29 and October 2, with Lahore hosting three T20Is on October 5, 7 and 9.

“The PCB is pleased with the outcome of its discussions with Sri Lanka Cricket, which has supported Pakistan in its efforts and endeavours for the complete revival of international cricket,” said PCB chairman Ehsan Mani in a press release.

“The upcoming matches will end the long await of the Pakistan cricket fans and supporters to watch modern day stars from both sides live in action,” added Mani. “This is something that will contribute immensely to our revamped domestic cricket structure.”

The original schedule had the limited-overs games chalked out for December while the Tests were to be held in September.

“The safety and security of its players is the responsibility of the SLC, which it takes very seriously. If there had been any doubts, the SLC would not have gone ahead with this arrangement,” Sri Lanka Cricket chairman Shammi Silva was quoted as saying in the release.

    what is this? if they cannot play Tests inside Pakistan then we should not return a visit, want to show their obedience and loyalty to india then dont come to Pakistan

    PCB needs to cancel this visit altogether. NOW. no need to play cricket with anyone who does not play in Pakistan. South Africa did not suffer during aparthied block from International cricket infact, they came back nearly making it to World Cup Semi Finals.

    so it should be noted, that PCB just wants to appease everyone, there were bombs going off in colombo and Pakistan team was there when Sri Lanka was a crap team and they owe their progression to Pakistan Cricket and our cricketers playing with them when no one wanted to play. THERE SHOULD BE NO CRICKET WITH SRI LANKA – cancel the tour, just play county cricket if you must and only those who play bilateral series in Pakistan and FIRST they need to visit before Pakistan team visits their respective country.
