The Zimbabwe cricket team finally got permission from the government to tour Pakistan. Zimbabwe will play three ODI and T20 series in Pakistan in October-November.
The cricket boards of the two countries fixed the schedule as soon as the tour of Pakistan was confirmed. The ODI series will be held from October 30 to November 3. The ODI series is part of the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League. The T20 series will be from November 7 to 10.
The Zimbabwean government allowed the visit after reviewing the situation in Pakistan. A source in the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said, “PCB chairman Ehsan Mani recently discussed the series with Wilfred Mukandia, the chief executive of Zimbabwe Cricket. Zimbabwe agreed to Mani’s offer. However, permission from the Zimbabwean government was blocked. With permission, the cricket board of the two countries made the final decision on the series.
Although the venue of the series is yet to be decided, six matches of the series will be held in a bio-safety environment and in a closed stadium. It is expected that all the matches of the series will be played in Rawalpindi and Multan.
PCB sources said that there could be an ODI series in Multan. This will be the first one-day match at the venue since 2008.
