Karachi: Pakistan and Sri lanka are set to play a three-match ODI series in Abu Dhabi next month after the Abu Dhabi Cricket Council (ADCC) received the funding required to host the matches.
The ADCC has confirmed that it has got the $3 million required to host the series between May 10 and 15, a Pakistan Cricket Board official said on Tuesday.
The money came from Abu Dhabi ruler Sheikh Nahyan after the two teams confirmed their participation for the series.
The organisers had originally planned to host a tri-nation series with South Africa as the third team. But the Proteas turned down the invitation after failing to reach an agreement on financial arrangements for the tournament.
The tournament will be the first for Pakistan after being eliminated from the World Cup in the first round. They will take to the field under a new captain and will also have a new
coach, after the murder of Bob Woolmer during the showpiece event.
