Australia's 'A' team arrived here overnight, an official said Sunday, hoping the tour would remove fears about security in Pakistan.
"We were expecting Australia A to tour Pakistan, as per their commitment, and their coming here has removed any baseless security fears," Shafqat Naghmi, Pakistan Cricket Board chief operating officer, told AFP.
"We hope to have a hectic cricket season in next seven months."
A government raid on a radical mosque in Islamabad in July and an upsurge in violence in the tribal areas bordering Afghanistan raised security fears, casting doubts over international teams' plans to tour Pakistan.
Australia conducted a security assessment ahead of the A team's tour of Pakistan, which will be followed by a visit by the under-19 team next month.
South Africa are also due to play two Tests and five one-day internationals here next month.
Australia 'A' will play the first of their three one-day matches in Lahore on September 5. They will also play in two unofficial Tests, officials said.
Test players Jason Gillespie and leg-spinner Stuart MacGill will join the team in the next couple of days, they said.
Pakistan A will be led by Test batsman Faisal Iqbal.
