Furthermore, PCB has also signed another title sponsorship deal for the Test series between Pakistan and Australia with the leading short videos platform, TikTok.
Pakistan has struggled to attract visiting teams since a disastrous episode in 2009. Moreover, Australia cancelled a tour five years ago following another incident in Lahore. They last played in Pakistan in 1998, winning the three-Test series 1-0 and whitewashing the hosts in three ODIs.
Before the Australians leave on April 6, the teams will play three Tests, three ODIs, and one Twenty20 match.
In the next 13 months, Pakistan will host eight Tests, 11 ODIs, and 13 Twenty20 internationals.
