Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided in principle to hold its upcoming ODI series against Australia in the UAE, it has been reported.

The one-day games are set to be held immediately after Eid which will be celebrated around August 22.

Intikhab Alam, a PCB director, said he would soon visit the UAE to finalise the venues.

"We are having a look at it as we are in the process of studying suitable venues to host the series after Sri Lanka withdrew its offer to host the series for us in August," a PCB official said in comments published by MSN India.

Pakistan is due to play a series of five ODIs and three T20 matches in the series, scheduled to begin from mid-August.

As expected the Australians have refused to play in Pakistan because of security reasons.

The UAE recently hosted the test and one-day series between Pakistan and England.
