Pakistan's much delayed test series against Australia will finally be played in England during the 2010 summer.
I am not too sure whether the World T20 victory and the support Pakistan had during the tournament played a trigger in making this official or not; however, it doesn't really make a difference what the trigger was.
I am just pleased that this decision has been reached.
I'm sure the rest of the Pakistan fans are too.
Competitive test cricket finally, against Australia finally, and in a place where Pakistan will surely have a lot of support.
It's 2 tests and 2 twenty20 games against Australia.
But that's not all.
Pakistan was already scheduled to tour England next summer for 4 tests, 5 ODIs and 2 T20Is against the hosts.
That series will now follow the one against Australia.
Next summer, Pakistan will truly make England their home.
6 tests, 5 ODIs, 4 T20Is.
And the best part about this is that I will be in England to witness it all.
