PCB Agrees to Reduce Number of Matches on Sri Lanka Tour

In July, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has agreed to cancel the one-day international (ODI) phase of Pakistan’s planned tour to Sri Lanka. The three-match One-Day International (ODI) series was not part of the ICC ODI World Cup Super League.

Pakistan and Sri Lanka were supposed to play three ODIs and two Test matches on tour. However, just two Tests have been scheduled. The two Asian countries last played each other in a white-ball series in Pakistan in 2019.

This year, Pakistan has a busy calendar, having just completed a full-fledged series against Australia at home, winning the ODI leg 2-1, while Australia won the Test and T20I series 1-0.

In June of this year, Pakistan will host the West Indies for a three-match One-Day International series and will compete in the Asia Cup beginning in September in Sri Lanka. Before the World Cup, the Men in Green will also play seven Twenty20 Internationals against England at home.

In the coming year, Babar XI will compete in two mega-events in Australia and India and a bilateral series versus Afghanistan, the Netherlands, and New Zealand.
