Wellington/UNI: New Zealand will tour Pakistan twice in 2022-23 for bilateral Test, ODI and T20I series.
The New Zealand Cricket (NZC) and Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Monday said the Black Caps will go to Pakistan in December 2022-January 2023 to play two Test matches and three ODIs before returning in April for five ODIs and five T20s.
The two Tests and three ODIs will be part of the ICC World Test Championship and ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League respectively.
The second visit will include two additional ODIs and will comprise five ODIs and five T20Is that will count towards the ICC Rankings.
PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja said: “I am pleased with the outcomes of our discussions and negotiations, and thank Martin Snedden and his board for their understanding and support. 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.”
NZC Chief Executive David White said: “Our respective chairmen, Ramiz Raja and Martin Snedden, had very fruitful and constructive discussions in Dubai, further strengthening the bond between the two organizations. It’s good to be going back.”
The two boards will continue to work together to finalise the series dates, which will be announced in due course.
