The first match of the series between the women’s cricket teams of the two countries was played on February 9 in Harare and the second match of the series was to be played on Friday, February 12.
Under the latest travel policy, Emirates Airlines has suspended its flight operations from Harare to Dubai from February 13 to 28, after which top officials of the two boards have discussed and jointly decided that the Pakistan women’s cricket team will leave on February 12. He will return home from Harare.
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chief Executive Wasim Khan said that it was difficult for us to decide to end the tour after special arrangements were made by the Zimbabwe Cricket Board for the Pakistan women’s cricket team. Following the decision to suspend our flight operations from Harare to Dubai, we had to repatriate our team within the next 24 hours.
“We are grateful to Zimbabwe Cricket for their co-operation and understanding of the situation, and we are hopeful that we will complete this extra tour at some point,” Khan said. The Pakistan cricket team is scheduled to visit Zimbabwe in April under the Future Tour program. The series, consisting of 2 Tests and 3 Twenty20 Internationals, is still scheduled as per its initial plan, but the PCB will continue to review the situation and flight operations of the Covid 19 in the meantime. The national cricket team is scheduled to leave for Blue on April 17.
