Zimbabwe Cricket Team (ZC) is expected to tour Pakistan in October 2020 for a three-match T20I and ODI series.
The communication major of the Zimbabwe Cricket said that they are looking forward to commencing their journey of international cricket by playing against Pakistan.
Notably, Zimbabwe vs Afghanistan was called off in the wake of the COVID-19.
Zimbabwe tour of Pakistan expected in October 2020
“ZC had applied for a waiver to proceed with the series in a strictly controlled environment, but with Zimbabwe experiencing a rise in the number of coronavirus cases, the Government advised that the country was not yet ready to host visiting teams,” he said.
“However, all hope is not lost as ZC will seek clearance from the Government for the team to travel to Pakistan in October. Pakistan has been having tours and conversations for a tour are in progress, but that will all be determined by Government’s approval,” Majonga added.
In 2009, outside the Gadaffi Stadium, the Sri Lanka Cricket team was targetted and an attack on them closed to doors of international cricket on Pakistan. No matches were held for eleven years. The reputation and image of Pakistan were spoilt among foreigners. Nobody wanted to tour and play in Pakistan and the cricket-loving nation craved for the back of international cricket for so long. They were termed as the terrorist nation. Must be hard on them.
After the hard work of the PCB and armed forces, the utmost security was granted which resulted in the comeback of cricket at Pakistan.
In 2019, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka teams arrived at Pakistan to play bilateral series. Since 2015, things started getting better and as Pakistan now has assured complete security as commented by foreigners who came and played in 2019 and 2020, the world trusts Pakistan, and more teams are willing to tour the country. Also, the PSL for the first time was entirely played in Pakistan in full-fledge.
