Meanwhile, Pakistan Shaheen also visited New Zealand while the women’s team toured South Africa and Zimbabwe.
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Director International Cricket Zakir Khan said that the PCB has been instrumental in reviving cricket activities after Code-19 and the visit to Zimbabwe is a link in the same chain.
“We believe that even in the presence of Code-19, cricket activities can be conducted in a safe environment and we will continue to demonstrate it for the development of the game in this difficult and challenging time,” he said.
