Sri Lanka to tour Pakistan for three ODIs and three T20Is
Sri Lanka will tour Pakistan three One Day Internationals and three T20Is in Septemer-October 2019. World Test Championship matches have been moved to December between the teams. Pakistan was supposed to host Sri Lanka for two World Test Championship matches earlier in October before they returned for three ODIs and three T20Is in late December.
National Stadium of Karachi will host Sri Lanka for three ODIs while three T20Is will be played in Lahore. Pakistan and Sri Lanka will face each other in a two-match Test series in December as a part of the World Test Championship. This will be the longest bilateral home series in a decade for Pakistan.
“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,” PCB Chairman Mani said. “The tour for limited-overs matches will also provide Sri Lanka with an even better understanding of the ground situation before discussing schedule of the Tests”
“We are very grateful to Sri Lanka Cricket President Mr Shammi Silva, his board and players for responding positively to our request to play matches in Pakistan. The PCB looks forward to welcoming the Sri Lanka cricket team and assure them that they will be as well looked after as any other international sides of the past.”
