COLOMBO - Pakistan will tour Sri Lanka next month for three Tests, five one-day internationals and two Twenty20 games, Sri Lanka Cricket said yesterday.
The Pakistanis will kick off the six-week tour with two T20s in the southern port town of Hambantota on June 1 and June 3.
The first two one-day internationals will be played in Pallekele on June 7 and June 9, followed by the remaining three at the Premadasa stadium in Colombo on June 13, 16 and 18.
The three back-to-back Tests will be held in Galle (June 22-26), the Sinhalese sports club in Colombo (June 30-July 4) and Pallekele (July 8-12).
Pakistan last toured Sri Lanka in 2009 when they lost the Test series 2-0.
The two sides met in the United Arab Emirates last year where Pakistan won both the Test and one-day series and also clinched the lone T20 international.
Meanwhile the future of John Wright as New Zealand's cricket coach will be revealed today.
New Zealand Cricket has called a media conference in Lincoln to make an announcement on Wright's coaching future.
Both Wright and NZC chief executive David White will front the media.
Wright had delayed contract negotiations until after the home series against South Africa, in which the Black Caps lost the Test, one-day and T20 series.
It was reported that Wright was concerned about the "Australianisation" of New Zealand cricket.
Former Australia coach John Buchanan is its director of cricket and fellow Australian Kim Littlejohn is national selection manager.
