Pak-India series: Sri Lanka decided as the venue


Sri Lanka is the destination which has been decided for the Pakistan-India series. The venue was decided in a meeting which was held in Dubai between the cricketing governing bodies of the respective countries.

The official announcement is yet to be made as both Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and Board for Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) await the approval of the governing bodies, but it is said that the matter of hindrance will no longer linger.

The series which is set to take place in December comprises of three One Day Internationals and two Twenty20 International matches between the two cricketing juggernauts.

According to a source, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka were chosen as the venues, but both parties agreed that Sri Lanka would be the better option.

Pakistan will benefit from the series as the cricketing board will be able to earn Rs3 billion through the series which will prove to be a unique asset before the starting of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

The last time Pakistan and India locked horns was during the World Cup, in which Pakistan had to taste defeat. The teams haven’t faced each other in a bilateral series since 2007.
