Latest Cricket News: The Pakistan Cricket Board confirmed the roster for the ODI series against New Zealand, which will begin later this month. New Zealand’s tour to Pakistan was ultimately permitted following initial snags due to security concerns, and the Kiwis will play on Pakistani soil for the first time in 18 years.
The tour will conclude on October 3 with three One-Day Internationals in Rawalpindi and five Twenty20 Internationals in Lahore.

While the majority of the players who went to the West Indies were retained, players like Mohammad Haris, Mohammad Wasim Jr, Shahnawaz Dahani, and Zahid Mahmood were given their first call-ups.
New Zealand will arrive in Pakistan on September 11, one day after finishing their T20 series in Bangladesh. This will be their first visit to Pakistan since 2002.
A bomb exploded outside their hotel in Karachi on the first morning of the second Test, cutting short the Black Caps’ tour of Pakistan in 2002. The next year, they returned to play ODIs, but have not returned since.
