New Zealand Arrive in Pakistan to Play Test Series After 20 Years

The New Zealand cricket team reached Pakistan on Thursday, their first visit to Pakistan after abandoning the tour last year.

The Kiwis will play two Test matches and three ODI matches, which are parts of the World Test Championship and ICC Super League, respectively. The visitors were presented with “Sindhi Ajrak” after they reached the hotel in Karachi.

New Zealand last visited Pakistan to play Test cricket in 2002 and last played an ODI series in Pakistan in 2003. Tim Southee will lead the test team of reigning winners of the ICC Test World Championships, whereas Kane Williamson will be skipper in the ODI series.

The visitors will rest today and start training in Karachi tomorrow. The first test match begins on December 26. It will be Pakistan and New Zealand’s first meeting in any format since the 2022 T20 World Cup semifinal, where Pakistan earned the victory and reached the final.
