Pakistan team will travel to Zimbabwe from Lahore on 30 April

Cricket relations between Pakistan and Zimbabwe have a unique history of their own. Just as Zimbabwe supported Pakistan cricket during difficult times, the Pakistan Cricket Board also supported Zimbabwe in every phase.


Zimbabwe is currently hosting the ICC World Cup Qualifier, so it is definitely a great move for the Pakistan A team to go there and play matches with the Zimbabwean team.

The Zimbabwean team will be able to fine-tune themselves by playing these important cricket matches with the Pakistani A team, and the new players of Pakistan will also get an opportunity to show the essence of their ability.

The hosts are sure to have one eye on the Cricket World Cup Qualifier during the one-day matches, with two spots at the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 up for grabs at the later event.

The first one-day clash between Zimbabwe and Pakistan A team is scheduled to be played at Takashinga Cricket Club on May 17, with the remaining matches to be played at Harare Sports Club on 19, 21, 23, 25 and 27 May.

Zimbabwe will also host the Cricket World Cup Qualifier, with matches to be played across four venues in Harare and Bulawayo from June 18 to July 9.

The event will see 10 teams competing for the two remaining places at the Cricket World Cup in India later this year.
Pakistan team will travel to Zimbabwe from Lahore on 30 April to play two four-dayers and six one-day matches from 3 to 27 May.
