The Pakistan Cricket Board has put T20 cricket at the top of its list of priorities for the national team before the next T20 World Cup, which will be held in the West Indies and the United States. Because of this, Pakistan will now play more T20Is at home against New Zealand, and the series with the West Indies has been moved back.
As part of the new WTC cycle, the West Indies were supposed to play two Tests in Pakistan in February of next year. But now that date has been moved to January 2025. After their tour of Australia later this year, Pakistan will now go to New Zealand and play five T20Is starting on January 12. Then, in April 2024, New Zealand will go back to Pakistan to play five more T20Is as part of the lead-up to the T20 World Cup.
Pakistan will play a total of 19 T20Is before the World Cup, which has been announced by PCB. The Asian team will also play three games against Netherlands, two games against Ireland, and four games against the current winners, England. Because of these changes, Pakistan’s trip to New Zealand to play three ODIs and five T20Is in January 2025 has been moved to April 2025.
