The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has confirmed the home series against Australia to be held in UAE. The series comprising of three One-Day-Internationals (ODIs) and three Twenty20s (T20s) will be played in August and September. The One-Day-Internationals will be played at Sharjah and Dubai while the three T20 internationals will be played in Dubai Sports City.
The Australian Board has confirmed the schedule of six matches. The one day matches, to be played between August 27 and September 10, will commence at 5.30 pm rather than 3.30 pm to save players from fatigue and injuries. Sources revealed that the decision has been made considering the extreme daytime heat.
