Karachi, 23 May 2022 (TDI): On Thursday 19th Pakistani Cricket board received Sri Lanka’s women’s squad in Karachi for a three-match T20I and one-day international series against Pakistan.

The first training session for the Sri Lankan women’s squad took place at the Southend Club in Karachi. The Sri Lankan women on tour put in a lot of effort in the lead-up to the PAKvSLW series in Karachi.

After three days of hard practice and preparations at the Southend Club in Karachi, Pakistan and Sri Lanka are ready for action, with the first of three T20Is expected to be played tomorrow.

Furthermore, the trophy for the Pakistan-Sri Lanka Women’s Series was revealed in Karachi.

Playing an international series in Pakistan is always thrilling, and such events always drive us to perform well and encourage the spectators.
