New Zealand in talks with PCB to reschedule Pakistan tour


New Zealand Cricket (NZC) has confirmed it is in talks with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to reschedule the cricket series it abandoned in Pakistan last month.

“New Zealand Cricket is back in discussions about reigniting their postponed tour to Pakistan,” says a report in NZ Herald.

The NZC has confirmed that talks are under way between chief executive David White and his counterpart at the PCB. However the report said that both sides are open to the possibility of the Black Caps returning before the end of the current future tours programme cycle in 2023.

‘New Zealand has contacted PCB to reschedule’

A day earlier, Ramiz Raja had revealed that the NZC has contacted them regarding the rescheduling of the home series against Pakistan and “good news will be announced within a week”.

Speaking before the Senate Standing Committee on Interprovincial Coordination on different aspects and future goals set up for Pakistan cricket, Raja had said: “The PCB may put forward its terms before the NZC by choosing the month of November in 2022 for the rescheduling of the recently postponed series.”
