Aussies set to tour Pakistan

The Australian cricket team is headed to Pakistan for the first time in 24-years.

Australia will play three Tests, three ODI's and a T20 throughout March and April next year.

It will be Australia’s first visit to Pakistan since the 1998-99 series, which featured Mark Taylor’s epic innings of 334 not out in the second Test at Peshawar.

Cricket Australia chief executive Nick Hockley said the organisation would “continue to work closely over the coming months to finalise the necessary operations, logistics, security and COVID-19 protocols”.

“The safety and welfare of our players and staff remains our number one priority, and we will continue to work with the PCB and relevant agencies to ensure that appropriate and sufficient arrangements are put in place for the tour,”

Australia’s tour dates of Pakistan are:

First Test — March 3-7, Karachi

Second Test — March 12-16, Rawalpindi

Third Test — March 21-25, Lahore

First ODI — March 29, Lahore

Second ODI — March 31, Lahore

Third ODI — April 2, Lahore

T20I — April 5, Lahore
