Pakistan mulling to host West Indies series in Sri Lanka

Pakistan is considering Sri Lanka for ‘home series’ against West Indies in October, claims a report by the Australian Board’s website.

According to the report posted on Friday, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is hesitant to give chance to the United Arab Emirates to host two tests and six ODIs because of prospects of limited revenue.

PCB Executive Committee Chairman Najam Sethi was quoted as saying, “PCB is not generating enough revenue from its home series therefore we are looking at the option of hosting West Indies in Sri Lanka. The board is doing its homework in this regard”.

Australia is scheduled to visit Sri Lanka between July and September after that Sri Lankan grounds will be available for international cricket.

Pakistan had used Sri Lanka as neutral venue to play a test series against Australia in 2012.
