New Zealand’s tour will be a double joy for Pakistan as they recently hosted England for seven T20Is at the National Stadium and Gaddafi Stadium. However, they lost it to the visitors but hosting the event would have surely opened up paths for more teams to play cricket on their home ground.

It is to be noted that currently, Pakistan and New Zealand are taking part in a T20I tri-series, also involving Shakib Al Hasan’s Bangladesh.The tri-series are in fact a preparation for the upcoming T20I World Cup where all the teams will be gearing up to clinch the title.
