After refusal, Pak to host Australia matches in UAE
KARACHI: Australia have refused to any of the ODI series matches in Pakistan due to security concerns and the two teams will now compete in the World Cup preparatory five-match series in the UAE. After much delay the PCB on Sunday announced that the one-day series would be played entirely in the UAE from March 22 to 31. The PCB had invited CA to send its team to Karachi to play one or two matches and were hopeful of convincing the Australians to come to Pakistan for the first time since 1998. PCB Director Cricket, Zakir Khan, however, said that the CA has assured them that they will send their security expert to oversee the execution of security plans for the PSL 2019 matches.
