January 24, 2021

LAHORE: Pakistan women cricket team’s tour of Africa has been extended and it will play three 50-over matches and two T20Is in Zimbabwe after their tour of South Africa.

The women’s side will play their last match against South Africa in Durban on February 3, and will travel to Harare for five additional matches, which will be played from February 11-20.

The 50-over matches will be non-ODIs as Zimbabwe does not have an ODI status, but the 20-over games will be internationals. These additional matches have been scheduled to help both Pakistan and Zimbabwe to prepare for the ICC Women’s World Cup 2021 Qualifier, which is expected to be staged in July.

Pakistan women cricket team’s head coach David Hemp says: “This is an excellent news for our team as we need sufficient competitive matches so that we go into the World Cup qualifiers as best prepared as practically possible in these difficult times.”

This will be Zimbabwe women cricket team’s first series since May 2019.

Series schedule: 11 Feb – first 50-over match, Harare Sports Club

13 Feb – second 50-over match, Harare Sports Club

15 Feb – third 50-over match, Harare Sports Club

18 Feb – 1st T20I, Harare Sports Club

20 Feb – 2nd T20I, Harare Sports Club.
