New Zealand considering PCB’s request to play in Pakistan
New Zealand are considering an offer by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to play in the Asian the country later this year.
The Black Caps are scheduled to play Pakistan in a full series – three Tests, three ODIs and three T20Is – in the UAE in October-November.
The New Zealand cricket board (NZC) have confirmed that they will be consulting with their security providers and their government before getting back to the PCB.
A spokesman for the NZC said: “NZC has received a request from the PCB chairman for New Zealand to play in Pakistan.
“At the moment NZC is doing due diligence on the request and consulting with security providers, the government, and the players.
“We will respond to the PCB when this process has been completed.”
The Kiwis last played international cricket in Pakistan in 2003 with security concerns preventing teams from traveling to the Asian country.
The PCB are trying to get international cricket back to the country and have made progress recently with three T20Is against an ICC World XI, one T20I against Sri Lanka and three T20Is against the West Indies played in the country.
