Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Ejaz Butt will hold a final round of talks with officials of the Emirates Cricket Board this week to finalise the venues for the one-day series against New Zealand.

Butt on Monday confirmed that he would be meeting Emirates board officials and representatives of the Dubai Sports City to discuss the terms and conditions for the one-day series to be organised in Abu Dhabi and Dubai.

"We want to reach an agreement with them that is acceptable to us and them as well. We are keen to make some money out of the series," Butt said.

New Zealand were supposed to tour Pakistan to play three Tests and five one-day internationals in October-November this year but have pulled out of the tour due to the security situation in the country.

New Zealand have, however, agreed to host the three Tests from November 24 against Pakistan and treat it as a 'home series' for Pakistan.

But the venues for the one-day series remain to be finalised with initial discussions between the PCB and emirate officials failing due to some demands made by the Dubai sports city.
