Pakistan are searching for alternate venues for their limited-overs series against Australia later this year after Sri Lanka backed out of hosting it.

The Sri Lanka Premier League is scheduled to be held in August, clashing with the dates of the proposed Pakistan-Australia series.

Nishantha Ranatunga, the secretary of SLC, explained the decision to pull out was because of the amount of cricket being played in Sri Lanka.

The Pakistan-Australia series was scheduled to comprise five one-dayers and three T20Is to help the sides prepare for the World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka.

Pakistan had originally considered Australia and South Africa among the venues to host the series.

Pakistan have had to play their home series in neutral venues since an attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in Lahore in March 2009.
