The Pakistan Cricket Board released the schedule for their upcoming New Zealand tour to Pakistan. Tour will start with the first ODI match taking place in Rawalpindi on September 17.
In the extended series, New Zealand will play three ODIs and five T20Is on its first visit to Pakistan since November 2003. It will be the first Pakistani tour of New Zealand in 18 years.
The three ODIs will be part of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup ODI.
Rawalpindi’s Cricket Stadium will host the ODI on September 17, 19 and 21. While Gaddafi Lahore Stadium will feature five T20Is from September 25 to October 3.
Pakistan and New Zealand will have high stakes in the T20I series as both teams aim for third place in the ICC T20I team standings.
New Zealand (NZC) cricket chief David White expressed his enthusiasm for the Kiwis.
“We look forward to returning to Pakistan to start their international home season. New Zealand was the first country outside India to visit Pakistan and we have close ties to PCB. It’s great to have international cricketers back in this country after such a difficult time for Pakistan,” he said.
