<p>Arriving in Islamabad on April 14, the New Zealand squad will play three Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) at the Pindi Cricket Stadium in Rawalpindi on April 18, 20, and 21. After that, both teams will travel to Lahore, where they will play the last two games of the series at the Gaddafi Stadium on April 25 and 27, respectively.</p>
<p>As evidence of the enduring friendship between New Zealand Cricket (NZC) and the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), we are happy to share the itinerary for the New Zealand men’s team visit to Pakistan in 2024. The strong bonds and reciprocal respect that characterize the relationship between our two cricket-playing countries are symbolized by this visit.</p>
<p>Usman Wahla, Director of International Cricket at PCB, said, “We hope to have yet another competitive series, which is a key part of our build-up to this year’s ICC T20 World Cup. Our avid cricket fans and the people of Pakistan will welcome the New Zealand team again.”</p>
<p>The Blackcaps’ next tour will be their third trip to Pakistan in the last 17 months. They had previously been to Pakistan for two Test matches and three One-Day Internationals (ODIs) between December 2022 and January 2023. The ODI series that followed was won by New Zealand 2-1, while the Test series ended in a 0-0 tie.</p>
<p>They traveled to Lahore, Rawalpindi, and Karachi later in April to participate in ten white-ball matches. During the visit, Pakistan won the ODI series 4-1, while the five-match T20I series ended in a 2-2 tie. Pakistan visited New Zealand earlier this year, but they lost the T20I series 4-1.</p>
