Zimbabwe’s Sikandar Raza hopes to upset Pakistan on upcoming tour


Karachi: Pakistan-born Sikandar Raza has hoped to upset Pakistan when Zimbabwe tours Pakistan for three ODIs and as many T20Is next month.

The 34-year-old said that he is looking forward to putting on good performances. “The last time we toured Pakistan we took them to the wire and the last game which was rained off we were on the track of winning it so good performances from me and the team is what I am praying and hoping for,” he said while talking to New Zimbabwe.

Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) announced a 25-men squad for the tour which have started their preparation from yesterday.

“The mood in the camp is fantastic and everyone feels great to be out training and being part of the national team training camp,” he added.

The Chevrons have not played international cricket since March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

It must be noted that earlier today, Zimbabwe’s government granted permission to ZC to tour Pakistan.

PCB announced that the series will be played behind closed doors. ODIs will be played on 30 October, 1 and 3 November in Multan, which will be followed by three T20Is on 7, 8, and 10 November in Rawalpindi.
