Pakistan will travel to Zimbabwe after playing three one-day internationals and four Twenty20 internationals in South Africa ahead of the T20 World Cup in India in October.

Zimbabwe, where there has been a hard lockdown on sporting activity over the last year since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, has not hosted international cricket since Sri Lanka toured in January 2020.

Zimbabwe toured Pakistan last October, losing 2-1 in the ODI series and 3-0 in the T20s. It played a two-Test series against Afghanistan in Abu Dhabi this month, as well as three T20s.
