Incidentally, the Black Caps had called off their white-ball tour of Pakistan minutes before the start of the opening ODI in Rawalpindi after New Zealand Cricket received intelligence from their government about a security threat. Since then, New Zealand Cricket had promised PCB to make for the lost games.

The scheduled two Tests and three ODIs are part of the World Test Championship and Cricket World Cup Super League respectively. In due course, the two boards will also work together to decide the series date.

PCB chairman Ramiz Raja has welcomed the decision and stated that it will confirm Pakistan’s status as an important member of world cricket.

“I am pleased with the outcomes of our discussions and negotiations, and thank Martin Snedden and his board for their understanding and support,” said PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja.

“This reflects the strong, cordial and historic relations the two boards have and reconfirms Pakistan’s status as an important member of the cricket fraternity,” he added.

NZC Chief Executive David White is excited at the prospect to traveling Pakistan and playing cricket there.

“Our respective chairmen, Ramiz Raja and Martin Snedden, had very fruitful and constructive discussions while in Dubai, further strengthening the bond between the two organisations. It’s good to be going back,” David White said.

Pakistan are scheduled to hold eight Tests, 11 ODIs, and 13 T20Is against Australia, England, and New Zealand respectively between March 2022 to April 2023.
