Pat Cummins-led Australia arrived in Pakistan on Sunday for a historic tour, which is their first to the country in nearly 24 years.
Pakistan vs Australia Series Schedule (Series Home, Squads and Live Updates)
Australia will play first of three Tests against Pakistan in Rawalpindi on March 4. It will be followed by Tests in Karachi and Lahore before three ODIs and a single Twenty20, all in Rawalpindi.
This is Australia’s ninth Test tour to Pakistan while between 2002 and 2018, the Aussies played four Test series against Pakistan at neutral venues (UAE and England).
Cricket-mad Pakistan endured a long spell without a visit from an international team following a terror attack on a bus carrying the Sri Lankan side in Lahore in 2009.
They were forced to play their home international matches abroad — mostly in the United Arab Emirates — until 2015, when normal service tentatively resumed.
