The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has announced the schedule for the ODI series against Australia which would be held in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in March this year i.e soon after the conclusion of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 4.
After the refusal of Australia to play 2 games in Pakistan, the PCB revealed the tour dates and venues on Sunday. According to the schedule, Sharjah would host the first 2 ODIs on 22nd and 24th of March.
After playing the 3rd game in Abu Dhabi on 27th of March, the teams would move to Dubai for the final 2 ODIs. Both the teams would look to utilize the series to test their bench strength and finalize players for the World Cup.
The series might see the comeback of Australia’s former skipper and vice-captain, Steve Smith and David Warner, as both would look to gain some match practice before being considered for the mega event.
