Ten Sports to telecast Pakistan’s tour of Sri Lanka Live from March 17

Ten Sports will telecast live and exclusive the complete tour of Pakistan to Sri Lanka. Pakistan heads for their much anticipated tour to the Emerald Island and will play three One Day Internationals and two Test matches in the series. This is Pakistan’s first tour to Sri Lanka in six years – their last coming way back in June 2000. Pakistan had won the three-Test series 2-0, with the third Test in Kandy being abandoned.

The ball-by-ball coverage starts with the first ODI at R Premadasa Stadium on Friday, March 17. This will be followed by the second ODI at the same venue on March 19, and the final ODI at SSC Ground on Tuesday, March 21.

The first Test will be played at the SSC from March 24-28, followed by the second Test match at Kandy from April 1-5.

Ten Sports has the exclusive rights to telecast all international cricket from Sri Lanka. Live coverage of the first ODI begins at 2:00 pm IST, while the second and the third ODI will begin at 9:30 am IST. The two Test matches will also begin at 10:00 am IST.

Pakistan, who will be playing without their strike bowler Shoaib Akhtar, will not be short of inspiration with legendary fast bowler Waqar Younis taking on the new responsibility of bowling coach, while Zaheer Abbas will be the manager.
