Mani noted that with the International Cricket Council (ICC) Test Championship starting in July, Sri Lanka will tour Pakistan in September.
After that, Bangladesh will visit the country in January and February next year.
“[This is] very good news for Pakistan cricket and it will herald the resumption of international cricket in Pakistan,” he was quoted as saying by the Associated Press of Pakistan.
“We will host Sri Lanka for two Test matches of this inaugural edition of the event in September, then our team will be flying to Australia in October/November for one day-night [Test] and one day-time Test for the championship.”
The ICC Test Championship will run for two years, meaning it will conclude in June 2021.
