Zimbabwe mulling a possible tour to Pakistan

Harare. (Online): After the successful arrangement of the final of Pakistan Super League (PSL) on Sunday last week in Lahore, it looks like there’s more good news coming in Pakistan Cricket Board (BCB)’s way.
And if this news becomes true, then this time around the Pakistani spectators are going to get back the opportunity of enjoying international cricket before their eyes.
According to a report published in the Zimbabwean media, the Zimbabwe cricket team could soon be touring Pakistan for a ODI and T20 series following Sports minister Makhosini Hlongwane’s visit to the Asian country.
“The minister expressed satisfaction that Pakistan has the capacity to host secure international cricket matches commending the hard work of the Pakistan government at continually improving the situation,” read a statement from Hlongwane’s office.
In 2014, ZC sent a team to play in the Asian country without government approval which resulted in the board’s former chairperson Wilson Manase being sanctioned by the Sports and Recreation Commission.
That was the first tour by a Test-playing nation to Pakistan since the infamous Sri Lanka team bus attack in 2009 which left eight people dead in Lahore.
