Islamabad: The Pakistan Cricket Board has finalized a deal for the United Arab Emirates to host its series against Sri Lanka and England.
PCB spokesman Nadeem Sarwar says the series against Sri Lanka will be played in October-November, while Pakistan will play England early next year.
The PCB was exploring the possibility of Zimbabwe as the other neutral venue, but Sarwar says both series will be played in the UAE.
Dubai and Abu Dhabi are the two cities which will host one-day internationals, Twenty20s and test matches.
Pakistan has been forced to look for venues abroad for its home series since gunmen attacked Sri Lanka's team bus in Lahore in 2009.
