Dubai, December 21: New Zealand Cricket have confirmed they will return to Pakistan twice in the next two years, following the postponement of their September campaign in the country.
New Zealand’s men’s team will play two Tests and three ODIs in December-January 2022-23 as part of the ICC World Test Championship and ICC World Cup Super League. They will then return in April 2023 for five ODIs and five T20Is to make up for September’s postponed tour.
“I am pleased with the outcomes of our discussions and negotiations, and thank Martin Snedden (NZC chairman) and his board for their understanding and support,” PCB chairman Ramiz Raja said. “This reflects the strong, cordial and historic relations the two boards have and reconfirms Pakistan’s status as an important member of the cricket fraternity.”
“Our respective chairmen, Ramiz Raja and Martin Snedden, had very fruitful and constructive discussions while in Dubai, further strengthening the bond between the two organisations,” NZC Chief Executive David White added.
Pakistan are now set to host eight Tests, 11 ODIs and 13 T20Is against Australia, England and New Zealand between March 2022 and April 2023.
