New Zealand Cricket welcomes Pakistan Test matches

New Zealand Cricket is looking forward to hosting three Test matches against Pakistan in December as part of a rescheduled tour.

The BLACKCAPS were originally scheduled to play in Pakistan at the end of the year, but the tour needed to be rescheduled due to the current security issues in Pakistan.

The Pakistan Cricket Board has now advised that it will play four One-Day Internationals and two Twenty20 internationals against the BLACKCAPS in the United Arab Emirates in October, and three Tests in New Zealand in December.

NZC Chief Executive Justin Vaughan said that while tour details had not yet been finalised, the prospect of hosting the Test series in New Zealand was exciting. "All the way through our discussions, our preferred option has been to play the one-day matches at a neutral venue and the Test series in New Zealand," said Vaughan.

"This will be a great opportunity for fans to see world-class Test cricket on our home grounds."
