Come over: PCB to Cricket Australia


LAHORE: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided to engage in talks with Cricket Australia (CA) to play at least two ODIs in Karachi next year, a local media house reported on Monday.

Pakistan and Australia are scheduled to play five ODIs between March 19 and March 31 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The two teams will face each other again at the end of October, next year for a series comprising two Tests and three T20s.

After futile initial attempts to convince CA to visit Pakistan for the matches, the cricket governing body has decided to resume the talks with its Australian counterpart next month.

PCB has decided to invite CA officials to Karachi during the hyped Pakistan Super League (PSL) games to monitor security conditions as the metropolis will host five PSL matches including the tournament’s final.
