Karachi, July 6 (ANI): The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has said that they will host Australia in three one-day cricket matches and three Twenty20 games in its "home" series in the United Arab Emirates from August 28 to September 10.
Dispelling Australia's concerns over playing 50-over games in the heat of the UAE, the PCB said the matches would start late in the day, when the weather is cooler.
"The series has been decided and we will have late starts in the matches to deal with the hot weather," a PCB official said.
Pakistan has been forced to organise another "home" series in the UAE after Australia refused to tour Pakistan because of security concerns, Sport24 reports.
The PCB had initially planned the series in Sri Lanka, but the Lankan cricket board withdrew their offer due to their premier league tournament being held in August.
Since 2009, when militants attacked the Sri Lanka team in Lahore, Test-playing nations have refused to tour Pakistan. (ANI)
