Pakistan announce ODI series schedule against Australia

Pakistan announce ODI series schedule against Australia

Smith and Warner, who were banned for their roles in last year's Cape Town ball-tampering scandal, are eligible for selection again on 29 March, meaning they can be called up for the fourth ODI against Pakistan. The final will be played on March 31, according to the PCB statement released on its official website.

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had invited Australia to play two of the five one-day internationals in Pakistan to further their attempts to revive global cricket at home, suspended since attacks on the Sri Lankan team bus in 2009.

The five-match ODI series between Pakistan and Australia will kick start in Sharjah on the 22nd of March. Smith though isn't expected to feature, still recovering from an elbow injury that also ruled him out of the Pakistan Super League. A process which began during the tenure of Zaka Ashraf continued until Najam Sethi's recent reign, during which the ICC rejected his case filed against the BCCI for dishonouring an agreement signed in 2013 to play seven bilateral series from 2014 to 2023.

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) managing director Wasim Khan is not confident about resumption of India-Pakistan bilateral cricket anytime soon but he has suggested a change in strategy to get the two nations playing.

The PCB was disappointed Cricket Australia had rebuffed attempts to have the five-match series held in Pakistan because of safety and security fears but, in return for staging the series in the United Arab Emirates, it's understood CA has only asked its counterpart to play in one day-night test in Australia next summer.

"The PCB was optimistic that it will be able to convince Cricket Australia to send its side for some matches after successfully staging high-profile bilateral worldwide series and the HBL Pakistan Super League matches in the past 18 months. In the meantime, the CA have confirmed they will maintain regular contact with the ICC". Global cricket was suspended in the country after an attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in 2009. A month later, Sri Lanka played a T20I at the same venue. Three further games took place in Pakistan in 2018, with eight scheduled to be played across Karachi and Lahore during the upcoming season of the PSL.
