ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is in contact with Sri Lanka Cricket Board (SLCB) and West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) for a series in Pakistan.

As per a source, the board is looking to host the series soon after the conclusion of the second edition of Pakistan Super League (PSL), whose final is likely to be played in Lahore.

“Yes, PCB’s top officials are engaged in talks with their counterparts in West Indies and Sri Lanka and hopefully one of these teams will tour Pakistan after the conclusion of PSL,” the source told APP.

Pakistan have been deprived of international cricket action since Sri Lankan team was attacked by terrorists in Lahore in March 2009.

Zimbabwe is the only international cricket team that has visited Pakistan after the sad incident, they played three One Day Internationals and three T20 internationals in Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore.

PCB is constantly looking to bring back international cricket back in the country, they asked WICB to play a series in Pakistan earlier, but, they refused on security grounds.
