Default PCB agree to host Australia in SL

Pakistan's home limited-overs series against Australia this August is likely to be played in Sri Lanka, with SLC secretary Nishantha Ranatunga and PCB director Intikhab Alam both saying they had agreed in principle to the arrangement. Cricket Australia's stand has not been made public but it is understood to be aware of the plan. The Memorandum of Understanding has not yet been signed and Alam will travel to Sri Lanka next week to finalise arrangements.
"Sri Lanka Cricket had expressed the desire to host the series to the PCB a month ago and both boards have no problems with it. I do not know about the stand of the other cricket board [CA] yet," Ranatunga told ESPNcricinfo.
Alam revealed that South Africa and Australia itself were the other two nations being considered as venues for the series, but Sri Lanka was selected for commercial and cricketing reasons.
Pakistan and Australia will play five ODIs and three Twenty20 internationals against each other. The original plan was to play just one Twenty20, but with the World T20 immediately after the series, the countries' boards have agreed to play two extra matches.
Pakistan have had to play their home series in neutral venues since the attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in March 2009. While the UAE has been their location of choice recently, the scheduling of the Australia series just before the World Twenty20, which will be played in Sri Lanka, may have influenced the decision on where to play the five ODIs and one Twenty20 international.
Pakistan have hosted a Test against Australia in Sri Lanka before, in Colombo in 2002. Their last home series against Australia was played in England, in the summer of 2010, after which they have hosted all their home series, including one against Sri Lanka, in the UAE.

We could rent our facilities to PCB, much cheaper than SL and guarantee of more crowd in their matches .... BCB lost a business opportunity i guess...

Ta aar bolte ... after all they are Australia.

pcb doesnt have any moral ground to demand any team to visit pak after srilanka tour crisis.......the reason pcb trying to force bangladesh to tour pak is because lotus reportedly struck a deal with the devil regarding "icc prez and the tour" or may be vice versa that the pcb struck a deal with the devil

Dont get it- If PCB can play their home series for August in Srilanka, why cant they play with us in April home series to any other neutral ground? Since its now clear that their home grounds aint security-proof yet for internation4al team, they seek help from SCB. All these indicate, the earlier sweet talk invitation drama were just to utilize advantage on Mr. Kamal's ambition and BD being minnow. This should really question whather PCB ever had any interest in playing test with lower rank team at all? or, BCB-PCB relation getting soured?

Based on Responses from the fan based site, BanglaCricket.com:

Why do i get the impression that majority Opinion in BC != general opinion/social norms in Dhaka/Bangladesh...

it seems to me that most members here(if not almost all) would detest carrying a pakistan flag/pakistani facepaint in the stadium, and yet when we see matches in SBNS....many Bangladeshi supports Pakistan! me no understand? u y no....?

It could be possible the minority is more motivated to show their support than the majority. They have a good lobby base. More tightly knit.

Or it could be anomalous observation, or rapid generalization of a fact that we hold in our brain as repulsive.

One attracts two things to ones attention - what you love and what you hate. One attracts what one hates to one's attention more than what one loves. Human nature - hence the ever so popular saying, and cliched, stay positive.

Perhaps...
