Zimbabwe Cricket Chairman Tiwanga Moklani and Acting MD Guillaume Makoni arrived in Pakistan yesterday. While the rest of the team has reached Pakistan this morning.

The series between Pakistan and Zimbabwe will feature a series of three ODIs and three T20I matches. Which will start on October 30.
The ODI series starting October 30 is very important for Pakistan. As it marks the beginning of the International Cricket Council’s World Cup Super League.
The top 7 teams will be eligible to participate in the event, while the Indian team has already qualified as the host.
The ICC has introduced the Super League to provide one-day cricket and will serve as a qualifier for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023.
The three ODIs between Pakistan and Zimbabwe were originally scheduled for Multan. But due to logistical and operational challenges, it has shifted to Rawalpindi.
Following the change of venue, three T20 matches will now be played in Lahore on November 7, 8 and 10. Where these matches were initially planned to be held in Rawalpindi.
PCB Director for International Cricket Zakir Khan said. That was when Multan was not available for logistical and operational reasons. So we revised the entire schedule and came up with a travelogue suitable for both parties.
Zimbabwe last visited Pakistan in 2015 for a series of three ODIs and two T20I matches. And became the first team to visit Pakistan since the 2009 terrorist attack on Sri Lanka.
The Zimbabwe cricket team will sit quarantined for about a week after the Corona Test, according to the SOP. After a week in quarantine, Zimbabwe will take part in a practice session for the series at the pindi cricket stadium from October 28 to 29.
Along with 12 teams playing 13 Test matches, the Netherlands will also be competing in the Super League. In which a team has to play a series at four home and four other places.
