AUS vs PAK: Australia Confirm First Pakistan Tour In 24 Years. Australia will play three Tests followed by one-day internationals and a T20I to cap the month-long tour.
Cricket Australia on Friday confirmed its first visit of Pakistan since 1998. Locking in a three-Test series in spite of lingering security concerns. Australia will play Tests — in Rawalpindi, Karachi and Lahore. Fresh off the back of a comprehensive home Ashes triumph against England.
They will also play 3 ODIs and a T20 capping the month-long tour on April 5.
“The tour will continue for the first time in 24 years. This can be a memorable event and important for the global growth and health of the game,” said Cricket Australia CEO Nick Hockley.
Cricket-mad Pakistan has struggled to entice foreign sides back after home internationals were suspended after a dangerous terror assault on the Sri Lanka Test side in 2009.
“I would also like to thank the Australian Cricketers‘ Association and the players, coaches, bolster groups, staff and security specialists for their collaboration within the arranging for the visit,” included Hockley.
“We are looking forward to an exciting series between two world-class teams.”
