Sri Lanka has agreed to play an unscheduled five-match one-day series in Pakistan from April 23 to May 5, official sources confirmed here on Thursday.

Pakistan invited Bangladesh and Sri Lanka to play bilateral one-day rubbers after security apprehensions prompted Australia to postpone their tour of the country for a full series which was due to start from March 29.

"Talks between the Chairmen of the Pakistan and Sri Lankan boards, Nasim Ashraf and Arjuna Ranatunga, were successful today and the Lankans will tour from April 23 to May 5," a Pakistan Cricket Board source said.

Bangladesh had earlier given its nod for a one day series from April 6 to 22.

The PCB source said venues for the series against Sri Lanka had been decided and would be announced later.
