PCB in talk with Black Caps to reschedule tour

Oct 8, 2021: New Zealand Cricket has confirmed that it is in talks with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to reschedule the recently abandoned ODI, T20 series with Pakistan.

The NZC has confirmed that talks are under way between Chief Executive David White and his interim counterpart. However, the report says that both sides are ready for the possibility of the return of the Black Caps before the end of the current future tour program cycle in 2023.

A day earlier, Ramiz Raja revealed that New Zealand Cricket had approached the PCB regarding the rescheduling of the home series against Pakistan and “good news will be announced within a week”.

Addressing the Senate Standing Committee on Inter-Provincial Coordination on various aspects and future targets for Pakistan cricket, Raja had said: “The PCB may put forward its terms before the NZC by choosing the month of November in 2022 for the rescheduling of the recently postponed series.”

The New Zealand cricket team withdrew from a long-awaited tour of Pakistan last month, citing a security alert from its government. Pakistani officials had assured NZC of full security but the Black Caps insisted on leaving the series.

The PCB had said that the security officials along with the New Zealand team were satisfied with the security arrangements made during the stay of the Pakistani government.

In a statement announcing the decision, NZC chief executive David White said it was “impossible” to continue the visit given the advice he was receiving.
