Pakistan to Host Test Cricket After 10 Years

LAHORE: Pakistan is all set to host test cricket again after a decade. Sri Lanka will be touring Pakistan for two-Test series in December.

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced that the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium and Karachi’s National Stadium will host the two games, set to begin on 11 and 19 December respectively. .

The two test matched will be the part of ICC World Test Championship.

It was a terror attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in 2009, when Pakistan last hosted a Test match, that marked the beginning of Pakistan’s international cricket drought. But while other teams have visited those shores since, if only sporadically, for limited-overs assignments, never has a team visited for a Test series since that incident.

Tour schedule:

11-15 December 1st Test, Pindi Cricket Stadium, Rawalpindi

19-23 December 2nd Test, National Stadium, Karachi
