On Tuesday midnight, finally both Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) agreed to play a short series in Sri Lanka between December 24 and January 5.

The highly anticipated series finally got the nod from Indian government this week.

Indian former minister Sushma Swaraj’s visit to Islamabad congealed the chance of series as both countries heads were seen talking on the sidelines of Paris Climate summit last week. So, when Swaraj landed in Pakistan on Tuesday afternoon the news came from Pakistan that Swaraj and his Pakistani counterpart Sartaj Aziz will announce the series on today (Wednesday).

 

The series has sneaked in between India’s tour of Australia around January 6 or 7 and Pakistan’s tour of New Zealand on January 7.

“Most probably both teams will go from Colombo directly to their destinations,” the source said.

He said Pakistan coach Waqar Younis indicated that he would like to conduct a week-long camp in Sri Lanka before the series with India.

The source also the series could finally reduce to be a two ODIs and two T20  as time is running out fast to complete logistical and organizational part by the host PCB.

“The PCB also has to contend with the fact that it is rainy season in Colombo in December and they will have to select venues in consultation with the Sri Lanka Cricket carefully so that bad weather does not affect these matches,” the source said.
