Australia to tour Pakistan in 2009 and 2010
MELBOURNE: Australia will travel to Pakistan twice over the next two years to make up for its canceled tour in March and April over security concerns.
Cricket Australia and the Pakistan Cricket Board said Monday that Australia will tour Pakistan in April/May of 2009 for a one-day series and then return in 2010 for a three-match test series.
Pakistan will also travel to Australia in 2009-10 for a previously scheduled tour, which includes three tests.
On March 11, Cricket Australia postponed its tour to Pakistan just hours after two bombs killed at least 15 people and injured many more in the eastern city of Lahore.
The tour, which had been scheduled to start March 29, had been in jeopardy due to security concerns expressed by Australian players and officials amid a wave of violence that swirled around the Feb.18 elections in Pakistan.
