Pakistan have not hosted any international cricket since militants attacked the Sri Lankan team bus in Lahore in March 2009. 

Afghanistan played a one-day series against Pakistan ‘A’ in 2011. The PCB had invited Kenya, and the two boards discussed holding the series in November initially, before the tour was postponed as the PCB waited for government clearance. -geo
