Australia's refusal forces Pakistan to play ODIs in UAE

Pakistan-Australia ODI series to begin on March 22 - Cricbuzz

Pakistan Cricket authorities were forced to schedule all five one-day internationals against Australia in the UAE after the Aussies refused to visit the Asian country over security fears.

With the 12-month bans on Smith and Warner - for their roles in a ball-tampering scandal that erupted during a Test match in South Africa a year ago - due to expire on March 29, it is possible their first taste of global action will come at the Dubai worldwide Cricket Stadium in the fourth of the five matches. Sharjah will host the first two matches on 22nd and 24th of next month, followed by Abu Dhabi on 27th and Dubai on 29th and 31st.

CA does not expect there to be any lingering issues between Warner and Smith and all players when the two men return. Smith will remain in an elbow brace until the end of February.

"I think when [Pakistan become a top team] that happens, it can create a situation where India asks us to play a bilateral series", new PCB MD Wasim Khan said in a media interaction in Lahore.

"Conditions in England will suit our style of play", added Ponting, who was appointed on Friday as assistant to coach Justin Langer for the flagship tournament, focusing on the batting group. I think we need to do that. "Hopefully I can have an impact right from the start".

In the last 18 months, Pakistan have hosted the ICC World XI, also comprising Australia Test captain Tim Paine and fast bowler Ben Cutting, in September 2017.

After the terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in 2009, worldwide teams have been refusing to play in Pakistan.

Australia has not toured Pakistan since 1998 but there has been global cricket in the country in the past three years, including three Twenty20s against the West Indies and matches in the Pakistan Super League. Last month, the Windies women's team played three T20Is against Pakistan women's team in Karachi.

Pakistan are now ranked fifth on the ICC ODI team rankings, while Australia are sixth - just two points behind.

Managing Director Wasim Khan on Sunday stressed the need to tackle the structure of domestic cricket in the country in order to achieve sustainability and consistency in Pakistan's performance.

"The PCB was optimistic it would be able to convince Cricket Australia to send its side for some matches after successfully staging high-profile bilateral worldwide series and the HBL Pakistan Super League matches in the past 18 months", the PCB director Zakir Khan said.
