Pakistan’s squad for Zimbabwe to be announced on Monday: Reports
Notably, the board has jerked timings for Pakistan vs. Zimbabwe forthcoming series amidst the day-time fog, including night-time dew fears. As the climate of Lahore, Rawalpindi has evolved particular weather issues over a point of time; it would be unfavorable for the sides to recommence the game comfortably.
As a consequence, the national board has decided to start the contest early than the fixed timing. As by the plan, which has now been changed twice, the ODI matches in Rawalpindi will begin at noon, whereas the T20I games in Lahore will boot off at 3:30 pm.
Earlier, there was a tweak in venues, and Multan Stadium has lost its rights to host any matches. The three-match ODI series that was to be played in Multan will now be sponsored by Rawalpindi stadium. On the other hand, the T20I series that was to be played at Rawalpindi, has now been moved to Gadaffi Stadium, Lahore.
