While it was scheduled to be held in UAE, SLC's security delegation positively assessed the security situations in Lahore and Karachi.
"We'll be talking to the PCB about some alternatives before we arrive at a decision. The government will be consulted as well," said SLC's security delegation official.
PCB has given glimpse of improved security situation
Notably, the security situation has certainly improved in Pakistan over the past four years.
The board has also successfully hosted the PSL final of the last three seasons in Pakistan, providing the highest-level security to the players.
Since 2015, three nations in the form of Zimbabwe, Sri Lanka and Windies, along with ICC World XI, have played in Pakistan, giving the fans some hope.
Lanka's decision to play Test in Pakistan a reciprocal gesture
While Lanka's decision to play Test in Pakistan comes as a shock to quite a few, it is certainly positive news for Pakistan and its fans.
Moreover, this is more of a reciprocal gesture by SLC.
Notably, the Pakistani board was the first to send a team to Sri Lanka, following the April bombings, earlier this year.
PCB managing director invites MCC to Pakistan
Meanwhile, following the improved security situation, PCB's managing director Wasim Khan has presented a case to the MCC World Cricket Committee and even invited them for a match in Pakistan.
"They wanted to me to present on the current security in the country, along with what impact playing no international cricket here has had, and what can be done to restore it," said Wasim.
"We will work very closely with the MCC"
"I am very, very confident that we will have an MCC team touring us in the near future. There are some matters related to security that need to be covered before they send their team. We will work very closely with the MCC," added Wasim.
