Australia tour to Pakistan for the first time since 1998, Full schedule dates, venues.!




Pakistan Cricket Board confirm dates for a three-Test tour, plus white-ball matches, that will be Australia's first cricket tour on Pakistani soil since 1998.



Australia are set to end their 24-year absence from Pakistan after dates were announced for a whirlwind month-long tour next March that takes in three Tests and four limited overs matches.


The Pakistan Cricket Board today announced a schedule featuring Test matches in Karachi, Rawalpindi and Lahore, which will also host three ODIs and a one-off T20 international that follow.


Australia's last tour of Pakistan in 1998 was made famous when captain Mark Taylor scored an epic 334 not out in the second Test of a three-match series his side won 1-0.



What's PCB chairman Ramiz Raja Said about the upcoming Australia tour to Pakistan.



Raja called the three-Test series a "connoisseurs delight".


"It pleases me no end that we'll be engaged in a three-Test match series, connoisseurs delight," Raja said in a statement.


"Australia are one of the high-performing sides and them playing in our backyard for the first time after a gap of 24 years will be a special treat for the fans.


"Likewise, it will be a great opportunity for the Australia cricketers to not only play at our iconic venues but also feel and enjoy the respect, love and hospitality that this great country offers, something which most of their previous generation of cricketers missed out by playing offshore."
