Dubai to host Pakistan and Sri Lanka Day-Night Test

Karachi: Pakistan Saturday announced the itinerary for a full series against Sri Lanka that will be played mainly in neutral venues but features a planned finale in Lahore.

The series will comprise two Tests -- the second a day-night affair -- five one-day and three Twenty20 internationals.

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) hopes to host the last Twenty20 in Lahore, depending on whether a three-match series against a World XI team next week passes off without incident.

PCB director Haroon Rasheed said he hoped the match would be held as planned.

Pakistan have been forced to play their home international games in the UAE since a 2009 terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in Lahore suspended all international matches in the country.

Itinerary:

  • September 28-October 2 1st Test, Abu Dhabi
  • October 6-10 2nd Test, Dubai (day-night)
  • October 13 1st ODI, Dubai
  • October 16 2nd ODI, Abu Dhabi
  • October 18 3rd ODI, Abu Dhabi
  • October 20 4th ODI, Sharjah
  • October 23 5th ODI, Sharjah
  • October 26 1st Twenty20 international, Abu Dhabi
  • October 27 2nd Twenty20 international, Abu Dhabi
  • October 29 3rd Twenty20 international, Lahore

Australia hosted the first day-night Test against New Zealand in Adelaide in 2015. Pakistan also hosted a day-night Test against the West Indies in Dubai last year.

PCB said the Test series commences in Abu Dhabi on September 28 and will be followed by a day-night Test in Dubai beginning October 6.

The five-match one-day series will be played in Dubai (October 13), Abu Dhabi (October 16 and 18) and Sharjah (October 20 and 23).

Abu Dhabi will host the first two Twenty20 internationals on October 26 and 27 while the last T20 will be in Lahore on October 29.
