ISLAMABAD (News10) – Zimbabwe cricket team have on Tuesday reached Islamabad for three-match one day international (ODI) and three-match Twenty20 International (T20I) series against Pakistan.

The visitors will undergo coronavirus tests in the federal capital today and remain in quarantine for one week. The series will be played in bio-secure bubble as strict COVID-19 protocols will be followed.



Pakistan Head coach and chief selector Misbah-ul-Haq Monday named 22 probables for the ODI and T20I series against Zimbabwe, insisting he has opted for experience in the 50-over matches and provided extended run to the youngsters in the T20I format.

Pakistan have not played ODIs since the home series against Sri Lanka 12 months ago and the Rawalpindi matches will be part of ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League from which the seven top-ranked sides, apart from hosts India, will qualify directly for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023.

For the Lahore T20Is, the selectors have preferred continuity and consistency, while acknowledging the just concluded National T20 Cup had provided some exciting talent, which will be considered for the Pakistan and Shaheens’ next month tour to New Zealand and early next year’s home T20Is.
