Zimbabwe Cricket will be sending a five-person delegation to Pakistan to assess the arrangements put in place to create a biosecure bubble ahead of the six-match limited-overs series between the two countries. The PCB is staging the ongoing six-team National T20 Cup within the biosecure bubble, the tournament expected to serve as a showcase for the Zimbabwean delegation.
Comprising three ODIs and as many T20Is, the tour is scheduled to begin on October 30 with the one-dayers. The ODI series, to be played in Multan, will be a part of the World Cup Super League; Rawalpindi will host the T20Is. Zimbabwe will carry a 32-member squad to cater both the formats as well as for the intra-squad warm-up matches.
This will be Zimbabwe’s second tour to Pakistan in the last five years – they were also the first Full Member nation to visit Pakistan since the terror attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team in 2009.
