Lahore, Aug.25 (ANI): The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has emerged as the first choice venue for the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to host the One-day International series against New Zealand scheduled to be held in November-December.

Sources said the PCB is likely to host the series in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

Though the terms and conditions offered by Abu Dhabi sports authorities are acceptable for the PCB, the Dubai Sports City has still not agreed with PCB on all its terms, the Dawn reports.

PCB chief Ijaz Butt is expected to meet Dubai Sports City officials later this week to sort out the issue.

The United States and Malaysia have emerged as the second and third options respectively for the PCB to host the series, but sources said PCB would face numerous problems if it decides shift the series to US.

It would be difficult for the PCB to obtain US visas for players and its officials if the matches are held in US. (ANI)
