Pakistan could hold its first Test match on home soil in over a decade later this year.
Sri Lanka are scheduled to face Pakistan in a two-Test series under the inaugural ICC Test Championship in September to October, and it has been reported by The Nation that they have agreed to play one of the matches in either Lahore or Karachi.
Pakistan have not held a Test match in their backyard since the Sri Lankan team’s bus was attacked by armed gunmen in March 2009.
Since then, the national team have played all their home games in the United Arab Emirates.
However, international cricket has slowly begun trickling back into the country as Sri Lanka played a Twenty20 International in Lahore in October 2017, while the West Indies played a three-match Twenty20 series in Karachi in April 2018.
