Sri Lanka agree to tour Pakistan

Sri Lanka will tour Pakistan next year following the withdrawal of India, the Pakistan Cricket Board has confirmed.

India pulled out on Thursday after receiving government advice in the wake of November's attacks in Mumbai.

Sri Lanka, currently in Bangladesh for two Tests and a one-day series, will play three Tests, three one-dayers and a Twenty20 game in Pakistan.

"Sri Lanka have agreed to tour Pakistan," PCB chief operating officer Saleem Altaf confirmed.

"We are working on the dates and other details. Sri Lanka will travel to Pakistan straight from Bangladesh where their tour ends in the third week of January."

Sri Lanka are due to arrive in Karachi on 19 January and play the Twenty20 game and the first one-day match there.

The proposed schedule would then see the tourists travel to Lahore for back-to-back one-day games and the first Test.

Multan would host the second Test and Sri Lanka would return to Karachi for the final Test before returning home.

The PCB will also hold a meeting to review the participation of Pakistani players in the two Twenty20 competitions in India.
