Pakistan mulling to play West Indies series in Sri Lanka

May 12, 2016 | By

Frustrated by over high expenses at their adopted home in United Arab Emirates, Pakistan Cricket Board is considering to shift their home matches to Sri Lanka, sources said.

Pakistan have been forced to play their home series on neutral grounds in UAE since attacks on the Sri Lankan team bus in Lahore in 2009 suspended all international cricket in Pakistan.

But UAE has had been an expensive proposition for Pakistan as stadium rents as well as accommodations are high in the gulf and Pakistan mostly end up at break even at times and losses on other occasions.

To overcome this PCB is considering the option of Sri Lanka for their not so profitable series against the West Indies in September- October this year.

“PCB is looking at the option of playing est indies in Sri Lanka as the grounds are likely to be available at that time and expenses will be far lesser than in the UAE,” said sources.

A final decision is expected by the next month.
