The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) asked Sri Lanka to tour the country for a two-Test series that will be part of the ICC Test Championship later this year.
PCB chairman Ehsan Mani and managing director Wasim Khan spoke to officials from Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) on the sidelines of the recent Asian Cricket Council (ACC) meeting in Singapore.
Mani and Wasim said that the venues for the two Tests can be Karachi and Lahore, and they also invited SLC officials to assess the security situation in Pakistan, a PCB spokesperson said according to The Nation.
The spokesperson added that the PCB are also waiting on SLC to confirm the dates of the tour should they agree to it.
If Sri Lanka agree to travel to Pakistan, it will be the latter’s first time hosting a Test series on home soil since the Sri Lankan national team were attacked by armed gunmen in March 2009.
It should also be noted that Sri Lanka played a Twenty20 International against Pakistan in Lahore on October 29, 2017.
