Pakistan and Sri Lanka have agreed to play a day and night Test match with pink ball in Dubai in the upcoming series between the two countries.

This will be Pakistan's second day and night Test in Dubai as last year also they had played against the West Indies and won the encounter.

The two cricket boards are still finalising the itinerary for the series of two Tests, five ODIs and three T20 matches.

A source in the Pakistan Cricket Board stated that the Sri Lankans have requested the series to start earlier in late September instead of early October.

He said the Sri Lankans are scheduled to tour India after the Pakistan series and that is why they wanted the series in UAE to start in late September.

The source said that itinerary for the series with Sri Lanka would be announced this week.

Top Test teams stopped touring Pakistan since March, 2009 when militants attacked the Sri Lankan team in Lahore.
