India and Pakistan last met back in 2007
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) have announced that the country’s tour of Zimbabwe has officially been postponed so that nothing gets in the way of their bi-lateral limited overs series against arch-rivals India in December.
Speaking exclusively to Reuters, a senior PCB official stated that the tour of Zimbabwe had to be cancelled since the national team were scheduled to play an ODI and Test series there in December.
“But since it is too close to the series against India we have informed the Zimbabwe authorities the tour should be held sometime next year,” the official said.
Pakistan and India are now set to play three ODIs and two Twenty20 Internationals against each other.
This is the first bi-lateral series between the two neighbours since the Mumbai terror attacks in 2008, which the Indian government have blamed on Pakistan-based militants.
The last time these two countries met in a series was back in 2007, when Pakistan toured India.
