Sri Lanka in Karachi twice after tour date change

Sri Lanka in Karachi twice after tour date change

Karachi will host back to back one-day internationals between Pakistan and Sri Lanka, following the Pakistan Cricket Board's revision of the tour schedule Wednesday at Sri Lanka's request.
Sri Lanka will now play two one-day internationals on Jan. 20 and Jan. 21 at the National Stadium in Karachi, with Lahore hosting the final match of the series on Jan. 24.
"Sri Lanka requested us to change the program which we have done accordingly," PCB's chief operating officer Salim Altaf said.
Earlier, the matches were scheduled to be played at Karachi (Jan. 21), Lahore (Jan. 24) and Multan (Jan. 27).
Sri Lanka's tour of Pakistan will be split into two. After the one-day games, it will return home for a five-match one-day series against India, then return to Pakistan for two tests.
Sri Lanka agreed at short notice to play in Pakistan after India canceled its scheduled tour in the wake of Mumbai terrorist attacks which killed at least 164 people in November last year.
