PCB OF­FER TO HOST SL FOR TEST SE­RIES IN PAK­ISTAN

Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - WORLD SPORTS - (Agen­cies)

The Pak­istan Cricket Board (PCB) has of­fered Cricket Sri Lanka (SLC) Karachi and La­hore as venues for a two-match Test se­ries, which will be a part of the ICC Test Cham­pi­onship, and is sched­uled for later this year.

The of­fer was ex­tended by top-most PCB of­fi­cials -Chair­man Eh­san Mani and Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor Wasim Khan - on the side­lines of the re­cent Asian Cricket Coun­cil Meet­ing in Singapore.

Along with propos­ing the two venues, the PCB has also ex­tended an in­vi­ta­tion to the of­fi­cials of the Sri Lankan Board to ac­cess the se­cu­rity sit­u­a­tion.

Hav­ing a top nation over for Tests will pro­vide the much-needed boost to their ef­forts. And, if Sri Lanka agrees to tour Pak­istan it will see the lat­ter host Test cricket af­ter a gap of a lit­tle over a decade.
