Karachi - Pakistan will host Australia in a month-long series that will be contested in the United Arab Emirates from October 3, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said on Friday.
Australia will play two tests, three one dayers and one Twenty20 match during the tour.
Since 2009, Pakistan has had to play all its home series at neutral venues abroad due to security concerns.
