Despite holding many International and high profile domestic games in Pakistan, the country is yet to experience a full resumption of International cricket. The green shirts have played ODIs and T20Is in Pakistan, but they remain without a taste of playing Tests at home.
In this regard, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) contacted Sri Lanka to hold the upcoming two-match Test series in Pakistan which is set to be played in October. While Sri Lanka looked convinced for the limited-overs series which is scheduled later this year, the Islanders had reservations on playing the longest format of the game in Pakistan.
To take matters ahead and review the security conditions of the country, a security delegation from Sri Lankan Cricket Board is scheduled to visit Pakistan next month. The delegation will visit Karachi and Lahore before submitting their report to the Sri Lankan board. This visit will hold immense importance as holding Test cricket back in Pakistan can serve as a gateway for many International games including top teams and players.
