Sri Lanka and Pakistan are set to face off in a Test cricket series starting on Wednesday, August 6.
The teams are playing at Galle International Cricket Stadium in Sri Lanka. The Test will last for five days, running through Sunday. The matches are slated to start at 10 a.m. IST (9:30 a.m. PKT, 4:30 a.m. GMT).
The matches will be broadcast on PTV in Pakistan, CSN in Sri Lanka, and Star Life OK in the United Kingdom.

Sri Lanka has had a busy summer, losing to South Africa in a Test series but winning in a 3 ODI series, and also beating England in a 2 Test series.
Pakistan has actually not played a match since the ICC World Twenty20.
Pakistan and Sri Lanka will play a 2 Test series–the 2nd Test starts on Thursday, August 14. They will then play in a 3 ODI series, with games on August 23, August 27, and August 30.
The 2nd Test will be at Sinhalese Sports Club Ground, Colombo. The ODI series will be at Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium, Hambantota; R.Premadasa Stadium, Colombo; and Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium, Rangiri.
After playing Pakistan, Sri Lanka has no matches scheduled until November, when it will take on England again starting on November 26–but this time on its home turf–in a 7 ODI series.
Pakistan is slated to play a T20I and a 3 ODI series against Australia in Dubai in United Arab Emirates, starting on October 3.
