National team to return home via chartered flight on May 12


Harare: The national men’s team after a successful tour of Africa will depart from Harare tomorrow at 8.00 pm for Pakistan via chartered flight, ARY Sports reported.

The squad will arrive at Lahore’s Allam Iqbal International Airport on May 12 at 10 am. Two members of the squad, all-rounder Muhammad Nawaz and Physio Cliff Deacon, will leave for South Africa tomorrow.

Remember, Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) gave special permission for the repatriation of the national team from Zimbabwe, one of the Category C countries listed due to prevailing COVID-19.

It must be noted Pakistan travelled to South Africa in the last week of March where they played limited-overs formats. They left for Zimbabwe from Johannesburg where they played T20I and Test series.
