Lahore: Pakistan are considering the option of Zimbabwe as a potential 'host' for the home series against Sri Lanka later this year.
The two sides are due to play a full Test and limited-overs series in October, scheduled in the FTP officially as a 'home' series for Pakistan. The board has intensified efforts to find a home for the series over the last few months. Sri Lanka itself is an option that has been considered, one Sri Lanka is probably happiest with; in 2009-10, Pakistan played a 'home' series against New Zealand in New Zealand itself, though financially the trip wasn't a success.
The PCB also asked Sri Lanka Cricket in May, "for their views" on the prospect of playing the series in Pakistan - at the insistence of the Pakistan government. However, that offer was swiftly rebuffed. Soon after the PCB had made their request, a major terrorist attack in Karachi at a naval base - which was eventually held under siege overnight - near the National Stadium occurred.
