New Zealand set to tour Pakistan twice next season

New Zealand set to tour Pakistan twice next season

On Monday, New Zealand is set to tour Pakistan twice next season, the two boards confirmed.

The two will first face each other in December 2022 and January 2023 for two Tests series, which will be part of the World Test Championship, and three ODIs, which will be part of the ODI Super League (for qualification for the World Cup). New Zealand then returns to the country in April 2023 for five ODIs and five T20Is - the ODIs, in this instance, will be solely for ICC rankings points and not part of the ODI Super League.

The first visit will be a part of the (FTP) Future Tours Programme. At the same time, the second was agreed to make up for the matches lost when New Zealand called off their limited-overs tour of Pakistan in September this year, minutes before the planned start of the first ODI, citing security concerns. The limited-overs tour in April 2023 will have two additional ODIs being played, along with those designed in the 2021 series.

"It's good to be going back," the chief executive of NZC David White said in a statement. "Our respective chairmen, Martin Snedden and Ramiz Raja, had a very fruitful and constructive discussion while in Dubai, further strengthening the bonding between the two organizations."

After being especially critical of the NZC's decision when they abandoned the tour this year, Ramiz said that the board was "pleased with the outcomes of our discussions and negotiations."

He said.

"This will reflect the strong, friendly, and historic relations the two boards have and re-confirms Pakistan status as an important body of the cricket circle,"
