A 24-year drought will be broken next month after Cricket Australia's Board formally endorsed the men's team's tour of Pakistan, reported 24NewsHD TV channel. 

Following a meeting of CA's directors at the governing body's Jolimont headquarters on Friday, a revised scheduled for the three-Test, three-ODI and one-T20I tour of Pakistan was given the green light.

“I would like to thank the PCB and both the Pakistan and Australian Governments for ensuring the tour will proceed for the first time in 24 years," said chief executive Nick Hockley.

"This is a historic occasion and important for the global growth and health of the game.

“I would also like to thank the Australian Cricketers’ Association and the players, coaches, support teams, staff and security experts for their collaboration in the planning for the tour.

“We are looking forward to an exciting series between two world-class teams.”
