Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has left no stone unturned to attract the crowd for the two-match Test series against Sri Lanka. It will also mark the return of Test cricket in the country after a long span of a decade. This series will also be the part of ICC Test Championship that got underway after the commencement of 2019 World Cup.

After a tragic shootout that took place over Sri Lanka team in 2009, every country cut down their cricketing ties with Pakistan. And, since then PCB was in their quest to bring back international cricket back into the country. Earlier, this year they got a big breakthrough as they hosted Sri Lanka for playing three-match ODI and T20I series. Now, they are ready to host the same nation again but this time for Test series.
