The New Zealand cricket team will tour Pakistan twice in 2022!

The confirmation from cricket boards of both countries comes on Monday stating that New Zealand will tour Pakistan twice next season, including once to compensate for abandoning their tour earlier this year.

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) in a statement said that the Black Caps will initially tour Pakistan from December 2022 to January 2023 during which they will play two Test matches and three one-day internationals (ODIs) as part of the Future Tours Programme.

“The two Tests and three ODIs will be part of the ICC World Test Championship and ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League, respectively,” the statement added.

“Our respective chairmen … had very fruitful and constructive discussions while in Dubai, further strengthening the bond between the two organisations,” New Zealand Cricket chief executive David White said in a statement.

“It’s good to be going back.”

The exact dates of the matches would be finalised later.

“I am pleased with the outcomes of our discussions and negotiations, and thank Martin Snedden and his board for their understanding and support,” PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja said in a statement.

“This reflects the strong, cordial, and historic relations the two boards have and reconfirms Pakistan’s status as an important member of the cricket fraternity.”
