Islamabad, July 26(ANI): The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has ruled out any change of venues for the upcoming 'home series' against Sri Lanka.
Pakistan and Sri Lanka are scheduled to play the series in October-November in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
"The venue and dates for the series were finalized after approval from the previous management of Sri Lankan Cricket (SLC). And their interim management must be knowledgeable about that as it is on records," the Express Tribune quoted PCB Media Manager Nadeem Sarwar, as saying.
It comes after the newly-appointed chairman of the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) interim committee Upali Dharmadasa said that the UAE venue for the series had not been confirmed.
"We haven't been informed of venues for the series yet. In fact the other day, I read on BBC website that series was confirmed to be played at Abu Dhabi. I learnt about it only then. We are going to discuss this matter at our Interim Committee meeting and then only we can communicate with the PCB and finalize the venues," Dharmadasa had said.
The series comprises five Tests, five ODIs and a Twenty20 match. (ANI)
