New Zealand is set to tour Pakistan in December/January 2022-23 as part of the Future Tours Programme and will return in April 2023 for 10 white-ball matches to make up for the September 2021 abandoned tour.

Following successful meetings between the two boards in Dubai last month, it was agreed the BLACKCAPS would tour Pakistan to play two WTC Tests and three ICC Super League ODIs - before returning in April for five ODIs and five T20s.

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

NZC chief executive David White said his organisation was pleased the BLACKCAPS were returning to Pakistan.

“Our respective chairmen, Ramiz Raja and Martin Snedden, had very fruitful and constructive discussions while in Dubai, further strengthening the bond between the two organisations. It’s good to be going back.”

New Zealand aborted the limited-overs tour to Pakistan in September due to security fears just minute away the toss in the first one-day international. England followed the New Zealand decision by also abandoning its short tour to Pakistan just before the Twenty20 World Cup in October.
