Pakistan to host one-day series against Australia in UAE

July 1, 2012 - Islamabad

Pakistan will play a one-day series against Australia in the United Arab Emirates that starts in August, a senior Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) official has said.

"Cricket Australia has accepted the itinerary of three ODIs and three T20 matches and also UAE as the neutral venue for the series," Express Tribune quoted PCB chief operating officer, Subhan Ahmed, as saying.

Ahmed said the six matches would be tentatively played from August 27 to September 10, as both teams have to travel to Sri Lanka for the ICC World T20 Cup, which will start on September 18.

The ODI matches would be held in Abu Dhabi and Sharjah and the T20 games in Dubai, he added.

Pakistan has played their home series at neutral venues since a gun attack in Lahore in March 2009 that killed seven people and injured five players.
