ZEE Network UK has bought the rights to telecast the upcoming Pakistan cricket tour of Sri Lanka.

The series consists of three Test matches and five One Day Internationals, to be shown throughout July and early August on ZEE Cinema.

The series will also include Pakistan competing with the home side in a Twenty20 match.

This is the first time in nearly two years Pakistan will be playing a full Test series, according to The Daily Times.

The first Test will be played in Galle from Saturday 4th July. Matches will start around 04:30 BST. The second Test will come live from Kandy and the final Test in Colombo.

ZEE Cinema will use pictures from the Dubai broadcaster Ten Sports, in which ZEE holds a stake in.

The coverage is expected to include preview and post match shows.
