Pakistan vs. New Zealand: White-ball trip schedule revised

According to the PCB, this is New Zealand’s second trip, and the games will count towards the ICC Team Rankings.

As a result of “elections in Punjab,” the limited overs tour schedule for New Zealand to Pakistan has been altered, according to a statement from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Monday.

New Zealand Cricket and the PCB “unanimously” decided to make changes to the visit, which calls for the Kiwis to play five ODIs and five T20Is.

According to the sources, changes were made to the schedule in light of the province’s approaching general elections, which are scheduled on April 30.

The updated itinerary states that New Zealand will arrive in Lahore to play three T20 Internationals from April 14 to April 17. The next day, the Blackcaps will depart for Rawalpindi, where the first ODI and last two T20Is would be contested from April 20 to 26.

The final four One-Day Internationals (ODIs), which will be played from April 30 to May 7, will be played in Karachi, marking the end of their trip.

This is a second tour for the New Zealand cricket team, and the games will count towards the ICC Team Rankings, according to Pakistan’s cricket governing body.

The ODI matches will also aid Pakistan in getting ready for the Asia Cup and the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023, while the T20I matches will help the PCB continue to reassemble the team in time for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024, which will take place in the USA and the West Indies in June/July of that year.

Updated timetable:

First Twenty20 International is on April 14 in Lahore; second is on April 15; third is on April 17 in Lahore; fourth is on April 20 in Rawalpindi.
April 24th, Rawalpindi, 5th T20I; April 26th, Rawalpindi, 1st ODI; April 30th, Karachi, 2nd ODI; May 3rd, Karachi, 3rd ODI; May 5th, Karachi, 4th ODI; May 7th, Karachi, 5th ODI
