PCB confirms tri-nation series in New Zealand before T20 World Cup 2022

Pakistan are all set to undergo a tri-nation series in New Zealand before heading to Australia for the ICC T20 World Cup 2022. The board’s chairman, Mr Ramiz Raja argues that the series will serve as a practice platform for the team before the marquee event, and different player combinations can be evaluated as well.

Notably, the men in green will host England for a seven-match T20I series and two Test matches. However, the tour will be split into two. The T20I series will take place before Pakistan fly to New Zealand for the tri-nation series, whereas, the Tests will be played after the team returns from Australia, closing their World Cup 2022 journey.

The New Zealand Cricket (NZC) is to reveal the schedule for the tri-nation series in a short course. The series composes of Bangladesh, New Zealand, and Pakistan. It must be noted that Cricket Australia (CA) triggered the idea of hosting a tri-series including India, Pakistan, and itself. Raja suggested making it a quadrilateral series including England, however, the ECB and BCCI rejected the proposals.

While talking to a group of reporters, the PCB chairman stated,

“After receiving confirmation dates from the touring England side that is due here in Pakistan on September 15, we have confirmed our participation in the tri-nation series to be hosted by Cricket New Zealand. I wanted my team to play a few internationals more or less amid Australian environments, ahead of the World Cup.

Now the team will be having a good opportunity to test their combination and leading players’ form during the tri-nation series in New Zealand,”
