Pakistan is scheduled to play two-match Test series against Sri Lanka in Rawalpindi and Karachi. First Test between both teams will start in Rawalpindi from Wednesday. A practice match will also be played between Pakistan and Sri Lanka in Rawalpindi tomorrow.

This series will mark the return of Test cricket to Pakistan after 10 years. Sri Lanka were the last team to play Tests there, in 2009, when their tour was cut short by an attack on the team bus. Their return to play red-ball cricket in the country thus holds significance.
