Zimbabwe Cricket Board Confirms Pakistan Tour Next Month

Zimbabwe Cricket Board Chairman Tavengwa Mukuhlani has said that the Zimbabwean team will visit Pakistan next month.

The Zimbabwean team is scheduled to visit Pakistan from October 20, but due to the Coronavirus, their visit was in a precarious situation.

With this series, Multan will host an international match after 12 years.

According to the details, Tavengwa Mukuhlani expressed hope that the team would get approval for the tour of Pakistan and an announcement would be made soon.

The series will be played in a bio-secure environment. However, arrangements are yet to be made by the Pakistan Cricket Board for the series and they will be completed soon.

The Zimbabwean team will remain in quarantine before the series after arriving in Pakistan, which will last from three days to a week, and the Pakistan Cricket Board is in touch with English board officials and the International Cricket Council to arrange the series.

After the coronavirus, England was the first country in the world to host an international series and so far the English team has hosted the West Indies and Pakistan as well as Australia.

During the visit of the Pakistani team in England, the PCB gained some experience and protocols are being formulated keeping this in view.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) decided to resume cricket activities in August after six months due to the sharp decline in coronavirus cases in Pakistan.

The domestic season in Pakistan is starting this month and the T20 Cup will be held in Rawalpindi and Multan before the series against Zimbabwe.

Zimbabwe is one of the few countries where the number of cases of coronavirus has not been reported in large numbers and so far less than 8,000 cases have been reported out of which 224 people have died.

Multan last hosted an international match in 2008 and will host three ODIs and as many T20I matches against Rawalpindi and Zimbabwe.
