Pakistan opens door for more Abu Dhabi ODIs

The lure of a cash incentive has led the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to reverse a decision against playing further matches in Abu Dhabi this year because of a tight international schedule.

The South Asian country rejected proposals from organisers in Abu Dhabi after participating in two charity one-day Internationals (ODIs) against India in April, but the PCB now appears to have opened the door for a possible return to the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The April one-dayers raised $10 million for the earthquake victims in both countries and Pakistan’s change of mind has increased the possibility of Abu Dhabi hosting matches in late September ahead of the International Cricket Council (ICC) Champions Trophy in India.

Altaf added that the team had a free period between September 20 and October 3 and could play in the UAE if financial considerations were right.
