Islamabad: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has confirmed the United Arab Emirates as the venue for three one-day internationals and three Twenty20s against Australia in August.

PCB spokesman Nadeem Sarwar said the ODIs will start at 6:00 pm local time to counter extreme daytime heat in the UAE while T20s begin at 8:00 pm. Sarwar said the matches will be played at Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah.

Pakistan has been forced to host its home matches at neutral venues since 2009 when gunmen attacked a Sri Lanka team bus.
