Zimbabwe series: Pakistan to announce team on May 18

ISLAMABAD: The national team for the series against Zimbabwe will be announced on May 18.
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) official said Zimbabwe will be the first Test-playing nation to tour Pakistan since 2009.
“Zimbabwe will be the first test playing nation to revive international cricket in Pakistan,” the official said.
Asian Bradman Zaheer Abbas while backing the tour urged the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to rope in other test playing nations immediately after this tour ends as all eyes would be set on this visit.
Abbas said the Zimbabwe’s tour to Pakistan will absolutely prove successful and will help in reviving international cricket in the country.
“After the Zimbabwe team’s tour, PCB should rope in tours against the other international sides as I believe a lot of teams would be interested in visiting Pakistan,” he said.
Abbas said this is a very good news for all our players who have been desperately waiting to play in their homeland. “The PCB should make the most out of this tour, as it is the first Test playing nation who is touring Pakistan since 2009,” he said.
Abbas wished except Lahore, the PCB had held matches against Zimbabwe in other cities as well, as not only the players but also the whole nation is dying to see international cricket in Pakistan. “Karachi, Rawalpindi and Islamabad were some good venues,” he suggested.
