ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided to renew talks with Cricket Australia to convince them to play at least two one-day internationals in Karachi next year. A five-match ODI series is scheduled between Pakistan and Australia to be played in the United Arab Emirates in March 2019, a private news channel reported Monday. The two teams will face each other again at the end of October when Pakistan will play a series of two Tests and three T20Is down under. After initial talks to convince Australia to tour Pakistan for the series yielded no results, the PCB has decided to resume the talks with Cricket Australia next month. The board has decided to invite Australian officials to Karachi to monitor the security arrangements during the Pakistan leg of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) fourth edition. Last time Australia played in Pakistan was over two decades ago. They visited the country in 1998 under the captaincy of Mark Taylor. Meanwhile, Australia High Commissioner Margaret Adamson will also send a report to CA regarding law and order situation in the country. He has already given green signal regarding improved security situation in Pakistan during a ceremony hosted by the board.Published in Daily Times, December 18th2018.
