DUBAI: Pakistan’s women’s cricket team is to use the neutral venue of Qatar to host a tri-series with South Africa and Ireland, an official said yesterday.

Pakistan Cricket Board interim chairman Najam Sethi said the first-ever triangular women’s one-day and Twenty20 tournament will be held in Qatar from January 8 to 25 in Doha, making Pakistan the first country to introduce women’s cricket in this region.

Pakistan have been forced to play all its home cricket on neutral venues of United Arab Emirates since terrorist attacks on the Sri Lankan team bus in Lahore in March 2009 suspended all international sports in the country.
