Cricket-Pakistan to host Australia in UAE

KARACHI, March 14 (Reuters) - Pakistan will host Australia in a month-long series that will be contested in the United Arab Emirates from Oct. 3, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said on Friday.

Australia will play two tests, three one dayers and one Twenty20 match during the tour.

Since 2009, Pakistan has had to play all its home series at neutral venues abroad due to security concerns.

"Pakistan will be hosting home series against Australia, New Zealand and Zimbabwe in the UAE from Oct to Jan," a PCB official said.
