Pakistan vs New Zealand ODI fixtures has been altered:
Due to the non-availability of the Decision Review System (DRS), a requirement in the event playing conditions, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and New Zealand Cricket (NZC) have mutually agreed to change the status of next week’s
ODI series from the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League fixtures to a bilateral series.
The PCB announced the news in a press release on Saturday.
“Because New Zealand will return to Pakistan in the 2022-23 season to play two Tests and three One-Day Internationals, the two boards have agreed that these 50-over matches will now count towards the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 qualification,” according to the press release.
The New Zealand team has arrived in Islamabad for three One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and five Twenty-Twenty-Innings (T20Is), which will be played from September 17 to October 3.
The Black Caps are making their first trip to Pakistan in 18 years.
