Australian volleyball squad will touch down in Pakistan on May 26 to play a three-match Test series against the home side.

This will be the first-ever series between Pakistan and Australia.

Pakistan Volleyball Federation (PVF) Chairman Chaudhry Muhammad Yaqoob also confirmed Australia team’s visit following his Monday’s talk with the Australian Volleyball Federation (AVF) officials.

The AVF had floated the idea of playing the three-match series against Pakistan ahead of the Challenge Cup in Bahrain. The PVF agreed to play the series after receiving the offer from AVF. 

“All the arrangements to hold the event in a befitting manner have been finalised that also includes security measures,” Yaqoob said.
