New Zealand is likely to tour Pakistan in January next year


Lahore: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB)’s CEO Wasim Khan revealed that the New Zealand cricket team is expected to tour Pakistan in January 2021.

Khan, while talking to media along with Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC)’s president Kumar Sangakkara at Gaddafi Stadium, said that the PCB is working on taking the international cricket in every city of Pakistan.

“We are working on taking international cricket in every city. The next normal tour is expected in Pakistan when New Zealand will tour the country next year to play two Tests and three T20Is,” he said.

“When they will come, we can provide more of a balanced schedule of matches, it makes sense to completely play series at a single venue because these are the short tours which were held recently in past months,” he added.

He emphasized the role of media who has portrayed the reality of Pakistan to the entire cricketing world. “The role of the media has been very enormous in helping us normalizing things,” he concluded.
