Pakistan had hoped three-match series would further help them revive worldwide cricket in their country, where foreign teams have been refusing to tour over security fears for eight years.

The season will be played in 2018 and Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Najam Sethi has already revealed that his board is committed to holding the finals in Karachi next season.

Sethi said in Lahore: "There were talks to play the series in November, but due to unforeseen weather, we didn't take the risk".

A third team will also be invited to United States of America for a tri-series, said Sethi.

Following the terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan team in 2009 outside the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore, worldwide teams didn't tour the country due to security fears.

Lions rally past winless Browns 38-24 at Ford Field
The Browns' formula when the season started was to play good defense and run the ball; to win conservatively, or at least try to. Prior to his exit, Kizer had completed 15 of 24 passes for 178 yards and a TD, while adding seven carries for 57 yards and a TD.

The news will be a big boost to the return of worldwide cricket in Pakistan on a consistent basis after successfully hosted World XI in a three match series and Sri Lanka in a solitary T20I game earlier. "And if you look at it, a three-nation tournament will attract a lot of interest", Sethi ended.
