ISLAMABAD — The Pakistan Cricket Board has invited Sri Lanka for a test and one-day series later this year in a bid to bring back international cricket to the country.

PCB spokesman Nadeem Sarwar told The Associated Press on Saturday that an official invitation has been sent to Sri Lanka Cricket.

Sarwar says the PCB has also promised “foolproof security” for the Sri Lanka team.

International cricket has not been played in Pakistan since March 2009 when gunmen killed six police officials and a van driver when they attacked the Sri Lanka team bus.

The Afghanistan national team will play three one-dayers against Pakistan’s second-string team next week.
