    where should Pakistan plays its home series Sri Lanka or UAE?

    There is a debate going on in PCB where to play its home series, mostly likely the locations will be either Sri Lanka or UAE. Which conditions suite Pakistan better do you think?? Both Pakistan and Sri Lanka are south asian countries, but UAE is more closer to pakistan distance wise and the weather in UAE is more similar to Pakistan, because pakistan is mostly a desert country like UAE and Sri lanka is a tropical humid country. So I am assuming UAE has more similar pitches to Pakistan.

    What do you guys think?

    here is the map btw, for those who can't figure out the distance between pakistan and the two countries"

    My favourite location would be England, because it will give our batsmen some good practise. However the ECB might not be so generous after Big Butts stupidity.

    Sri Lanka in my opinion. They have really good Test match pitches with something for seamers and spin bowlers.

    Both places with some flat pitches among others.

    Reckon Pakistan may get more support in the UAE though and they are improving infrastructure there.
    Can stage matches in different emirates too.

    And rain is a issue in Srilanka in the off season while Srilanka would be playing any ways in their cricketing season at home.

    UAE.

    The key to becoming a good test side is to first become a side that is difficult to beat also the roads of UAE will help the young Pakistani batsman in getting the confidence to score big.

    Pakistan must never be invited to play in England again while Ijaz Butt holds a position of power in the PCB.

    Srilanka.

    Really enjoyed our matches during the WC there.I never enjoy matches in UAE after Sharjah got the kick because the place doesn't have that cricket feel to it.Also,going by the support we had during the WC in Srilanka,we would get decent,if not great support in Srilanka.

    Our supporters in UAE would be too busy driving taxis.

    Pakistan might feel more at home in the UAE (understandably so). The crowd support and pitches would be more to their liking. On a related note, let's hope cricket returns to Pakistan as soon as possible. Watching all those men who come to watch matches in the UAE isn't quite the same as watching those beautiful damsels from Karachi cheer their team on.

    Cevno sums it up perfectly:

    And rain is a issue in Srilanka in the off season while Srilanka would be playing any ways in their cricketing season at home.
    It's a better bet for Pakistan to play in a nation which doesn't play test cricket itself. A clash of interests would be avoided in that way. Plus, the tracks in UAE aren't too dissimilar to the ones in Multan or Faisalabad. The good local support would also be a benefit to the team.

    best situation is play in UAE and look to invite the associate sides and A teams of the major nations this will help to build the trust back of the member nations though can't see a major tour fr another 5 years.
