Islamabad, Feb 26 (ANI): Pakistan is looking for a suitable venue to stage their one-day series against Australia later this year, a Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) official has said.
Pakistan has five one-day matches scheduled for August this year and PCB chief operating officer Subhan Ahmad said that three venues were under consideration.
"We are looking out for a suitable venue for the five one-days against Australia as it would be very hot to play in the UAE in mid-August," the Daily Times quoted Ahmad, as saying.
Pakistan had been forced to play their home series at the neutral venues of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), New Zealand and England since international cricket was halted in the country after attacks on the Sri Lankan team bus in 2009.
The terrorists attacks in Lahore suspended all international cricket in Pakistan. Even before the attacks Pakistan had been a 'no go' zone for international teams since the 9-11 attacks on the United States which sparked security fears in and around Pakistan.
Australia have not toured Pakistan since 1998, forcing them to play in Sri Lanka and Sharjah (2002) and in England in 2010. (ANI)
