Lahore, Mar 20 : Sri Lanka will play a five-match one-day international (ODI) series in Pakistan following the postponement of Australia's tour over security fears.
"We are thankful to the Sri Lankan board, who have agreed to tour for a series of five one-day internationals on our invitation," Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Nasim Ashraf told reporters.
The series is likely to take place after Sri Lanka ends a tour of the West Indies on April 15.
Cricket Sri Lanka chairman Arjuna Ranatunga said he was ready to send his team.
"India and Pakistan have always supported us in our needs like big brothers so I am ready to send my team whenever Pakistan want," the Dawn quoted Ranatunga, as saying.
The PCB would finalize the dates for the series shortly.
