The Pakistan Cricket Board is reportedly in talks with Sri Lanka to host them on home soil for a two-match Test series this year, as part of the ICC’s inaugural edition of World Test championship.

According to sources, there is a likelihood that Sri Lanka could soon agree to send their team to play the two Tests in Pakistan, though nothing is official yet.

Once the Sri Lankan Cricket Board gives its consent, then the PCB will announce the schedule of the two Tests.

The Test matches will be played in Karachi and Lahore. The inaugural ICC World Test Championship will begin in July this year with the final in June 2021.

The championship will feature nine of the 12 Test playing nations, not including Afghanistan, Ireland and Zimbabwe.
