Australia tour of Pakistan itinerary likely to be changed
Talks are underway between the two cricket board in this regard.
The schedule of Australia tour to Pakistan is likely to be changed, according to media reports. The first test match of the three match-test series is scheduled to be held in Karachi on March 3.
However, Cricket Australia has suggested to start the series from Rawalpindi instead of Karachi. As per the original schedule unveiled by Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), the Rawalpindi test is set to be played from March 12-16.
Australia will play three test matches, as many One Day Internationals (ODIs) and T20I during their tour of Pakistan. It will be their first tour of Pakistan in over two decades.
“Talks are underway between the officials of PCB and Cricket Australia to finalize the schedule,” sources said.
The tests and ODIs are part of the ICC World Test Championship and ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League respectively. The ODIs and T20I will be played in Lahore from March 29 to April 5.
Meanwhile, Australian skipper Pat Cummins has once again stated that majority of the players are happy with the security arrangements. He also added that some players might not tour Pakistan.
Pat Cummins said: “There is still a little bit of work to do. We have received a lot of information and it has been great. All the pre-tour security and biosecurity work has been done and it’s been fantastic.”
