ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has confirmed the United Arab Emirates as the venue for three one-day internationals and three Twenty20s against Australia in August.    

Pakistan Cricket Board spokesman Nadeem Sarwar said the ODIs will start at 6:00 pm local time to counter extreme daytime heat in the UAE while T20s begin at 8:00 pm.

Sarwar said the matches will be played at Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah.

“Cricket Australia has accepted the itinerary of three ODIs and three T20 matches and also UAE as the neutral venue for the series,” chief operating officer, Subhan Ahmed told Reuters.

“The one-dayers will start around six in the evening and the T20 games around eight so we can beat the heat.”

Ahmed said the six matches would be tentatively played from Aug. 27 to Sept. 10 as both teams have to travel to Sri Lanka for the ICC World T20 Cup, which starts on Sept. 18.

The ODI matches would be held in Abu Dhabi and Sharjah and the T20 games in Dubai, he added.
