“They (Sri Lanka) are keen to come and help us out,” Naghmi was quoted as saying in The Daily Telegraph.
“We are confident of finalising the itinerary shortly.”
Australia postponed their tour because of security concerns in Pakistan.
Bangladesh are to play their first two games in Lahore followed by matches in Multan, Faisalabad and Karachi.
The Twenty20 game will also take place in Karachi.
