Pakistan and Zimbabwe’s home series against Afghanistan got canceled this year as the government decided to take additional safety measures to control the spread of the global coronavirus pandemic. But, the cricket team of Zimbabwe is still hopeful to visit Pakistan this year in October for their ODI series and three-match T20, according to the reports of ARY News.
Darlington Majonga Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) communications manager while talking to The Chronicles said that the team is trying hard to save their international season by making a tour to Pakistan if the government approves.
The cricket team has asked for permission to proceed with the series in a controlled environment but the country is noticing a rise in the cases of COVID-19 day by day and so the government says that Zimbabwe is not in a position to host the visiting teams.
The communication Manager of ZC says that however, there is still hope as the team is going to seek permission from the government to visit Pakistan in October for the matches. On the other hand, Pakistan is also having conversations to host the tour but all this depends on the government’s approval.
According to Pakistan’s tour schedule, the team had to tour South Africa this year but it has been delayed now as the Proteas’ players are currently busy playing (IPL) Indian Premier League in the UAE.
