The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Sunday announced a revised itinerary and schedule for the upcoming Zimbabwe series, taking Multan out and adding Lahore to the equation.
The PCB cited “logistical and operational challenges” for the switch, which came after Multan’s local authorities demanded Rs200 million as administrative expenses to host the matches.
As per the new schedule, the three-match ODI series, which were to be held in Multan, will now be played in Rawalpindi between October 30 and November 3.
Meanwhile, the T20I series, which was to be staged in Rawalpindi, has now been moved to Lahore’s Gaddafi Stadium. That series will be played between November 7 and 10.
The complete, revised schedule of Zimbabwe’s tour of Pakistan is listed below:
