New Zealand Cricket Board (NZC) and Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) have mutually agreed upon changing the status of the Pak vs NZ ODI series from ICC World Cup Super League fixtures to a bilateral series.
The decision has been taking following PCB’s failure to arrange the Decision Review System (DRS), a mandatory requirement in the playing conditions for ICC events.
As a consequence, the two boards have agreed for New Zealand’s return to Pakistan in 2022-23 for two red-ball and three ODI encounters. These three 50-over games will be counted towards the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 qualification.
Pak vs NZ series excluded from ICC World Cup Super League
It is pertinent to mention that kiwis are coming to the green shirts’ realm after a long span of 18 years. The pre-scheduled series will undergo as scheduled with no changes in venue or time. The only thing that has changed is its status from ICC World Cup Super League fixtures to a bilateral series.
Pakistan and New Zealand, at first, will undergo a three-match ODI series to be followed by five-match T20I series to be contested at Rawalpindi, Gadaffi stadiums respectively.
