Pakistan to host New Zealand for two Tests, three ODIs from December 26 Cricket News


Karachi: Pakistan will host New Zealand for two Tests and three One Day Internationals from December 26 to January 14, with most of the matches being played here.
As per the itinerary issued by pakistan cricket The Board (PCB) will start the Test series on Tuesday from December 26 in Karachi while the second match will be played in Multan from January 3.
The ODIs are to be held on January 10, 12 and 14 at the National Stadium in Karachi.
New Zealand were supposed to play ODI and T20I series last year, but without playing any matches from Rawalpindi on instructions from their government, there was an unknown threat to their security.
This year has proved to be a boon for Pakistan cricket as they have already hosted Australia while England are now playing a Test series in the country after playing a seven-match T20I series in October.
Pakistan did not host any Test or international series between 2009 and 2019 due to security concerns for foreign teams following the terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan team in Lahore in March 2009.
The series against New Zealand has been extended by a day with the consent of both the boards.
New Zealand last played a Test match in Pakistan in 2003.
New Zealand will tour Pakistan in April next year for another joint white-ball series.
