COVID-19: PCB to host Zimbabwe in October-November

Pakistan Cricket Board is gearing up to host Zimbabwe either in October or November for two limited-overs series.

The African nation is considering to play three One Day Internationals and as many T20 Internationals in Pakistan, after the Government had denied permission to host Pak.

The PCB is contemplating two options. Either to host Zimbabwe in November or advance the series by a month in October and complete the remaining games of the Pakistan Super League after that.

The PSL Season 5 was suspended abruptly due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The PCB is also working to create a bio-secure bubble for the home series against Zimbabwe.

Meanwhile, Zimbabwe Cricket has formally sought the Government permission to send the team to Pakistan.

ZC Communications Manager Darlington Majonga has reportedly confirmed that an application has been moved “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.

“However, all hope is not lost as ZC will seek clearance from the government for the team to travel to Pakistan in October.”

The Pakistan cricket team is currently playing a Test series in England in a bio-secure bubble.
