Pakistan to host Test cricket for first time in 10 years


Test cricket will return to Pakistan for the first time in 10 years with the visit of Sri Lanka next month.

The country’s cricket board (PCB) has confirmed Sri Lanka will play two matches in Rawalpindi, from December 11 and Karachi from December 19.

Pakistan last hosted Test cricket in 2009 when Sri Lanka were again the visitors.

Their team bus was attacked in Lahore, leaving six security personnel and two civilians dead. Six players were injured.
