The second and third Tests will be played in Karachi and Lahore respectively. The Pakistan vs Australia series can be seen live in India and live streaming will be available on digital devices. (More Cricket News)

Overseas cricket teams visiting Pakistan has been a distant dream still a few years ago after the 2009 terrorist attacks on visiting Sri Lankan team bus. As a result, Pakistan had to play their home games in neighbouring United Arab Emirates.

However, the Pakistan Cricket Board has done enough to reassure international cricket authorities last year, with both New Zealand and England scheduled to tour. But New Zealand left just minutes before the first match citing security fears.

Following New Zealand’s sudden departure, England postponed their men’s and women’s teams’ visit soon after. But with the Australia series, the PCB is hoping to prove to both New Zealand Cricket and England and Wales Cricket Board that it is safe to visit their country.

Following the Test series, Australia will play three ODIs against Pakistan before concluding the tour with a T20 on April 5. Pakistan are coming into this series after a successful tour of Bangladesh last year winning all the matches – three T20s and two Tests.

On the other hand, Australia landed in Pakistan on the back of a 4-1 T20 series win against Sri Lanka at home.
