    I think two Test series is becoming the fast food version of Test cricket.

    Revised Test/ODI itinerary after Peshawar and Rawalpindi were ‘dropped’. PCB claim due to the grounds not being up to international standards but according to CSA sources, safety concerns was the paramount reasoning for the change of venue.

    Oct 1-5: 1st Test in Karachi

    Oct 8-12: 2nd Test in Lahore

    Oct 18: 1st ODI in Lahore

    Oct 20: 2nd ODI in Lahore

    Oct 23: 3rd ODI in Faisalabad

    Oct 26: 4th ODI in Multan

    Oct 29: 5th ODI in Karachi


    There is still talk that Karachi won’t happen and given the impending state of emergency in Pakistan, this tour maybe in some jeopardy.

    only two tests... don't like that.. two test matches are usually fixed.. one team would win one and the other team would win the other one.. what is the point of having a series when there is no result.

    Good cricket, strong individual performances. Also, you can't just assume that two Test match series are usually fixed, have you ever considered that the team who is down 1-0 after the first Test will dig a little deeper and put in a better performance?

    Exactly, South Africa had a two Test tour of Pakistan not that long ago, not to mention the New Zealand-Sri Lanka series. These two Test series should be played against Bangladesh, much like Australia did in 2005.

    Most of the test series South Africa plays outside home are 2- test series especially when they play in the sub-continent.
    Really can't remember when was the last time South Africa played in anything but a 2-test series in the sub-continent.
    Anyways is South Africa happy with the situation and security arrangements in Pakistan.

    These things can happen anywhere now, I dont remember Aussies complaining during Ashes 05 when the bombs popped off in london.

    They were not happy about playing in Peshawar and Rawalpindi, hence why the venues were switched and they are still concerned about Karachi.

    Weren't the London bombings some time after the 2005 Ashes? I know there was a foiled plot to leak toxic gas into the Australian changing room at Lords, but that didn't come to light until the tour was long finished.

    Finally, some real cricket for Pakistan. Although I do think it may be one ODI too many, especially ahead of a longer tour to India. Feeling that Pakistan should win the Test series fairly comfortably. Should be good preparation though for what should be a stiff challenge in the Test series in India.
