The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) received a formal invitation from New Zealand Cricket (NZC) to play the tri-nation series ahead of the T20 World Cup later this year.

The PCB is considering accepting the invitation as it will help players gear up for the World Cup, according to a PCB official.

NZC put forward the proposal during the ICC conference. The other team offered to play in the series apart from Pakistan was Bangladesh.

Ahead of the tri-nation series, the Tigers will travel to Australia for a week-long training camp where they will play practice matches against the local sides in September.

The dates for the series are yet to be decided. However, it is most likely to be scheduled between late September and early October.
