U-19 Asia Cup shifted from Bengaluru to Malaysia

Pakistan’s new cricket boss eyes top flight tours

Also, the players in English country, including pacer Mohammad Amir, Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed, prolific batsman Fakhar Zaman, have received recall notices from the cricket board to end commitments with their respective franchises.

In a statement issued on Friday, the board said that the centrally contracted players were given permission to participate in the CPL and English county season on the condition that they would be recalled if the ICC World- XI series took place mid-September.

Diplomatic tensions between the two nations have prevented the neighbours from playing a bilateral series since 2007, apart from Pakistan's tour to India in 2012-2013 when they played a short limited-overs series.

The World XI's visit - subject to security clearance - was originally scheduled for the last week of September but it has been brought forward into a window between September 10 and 16.

ICC had granted Pakistan to host a series against World XI, comprising of top players from the cricketing fraternity in late September, but owing to Sri Lanka's tour of Pakistan in UAE (starting from September 24), the series is likely to be held in mid September.


After objections raised by Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Asian Cricket Council (ACC) have moved the Under-19 Asia Cup that was supposed to be held in India to Malaysia.

A team of global cricket stars is scheduled to visit Pakistan for three T20 matches in September.

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has made a decision to call back the centrally-contracted players from their ongoing Caribbean Premier League (CPL) and English county stints.

The returning players have been asked to report to the National Cricket Academy for fitness and medical tests under Arthur's supervision on August 22.
