Pakistan to Participate in Tri-Series in Zimbabwe Next Month
The Pakistan Cricket Board has given its consent to play in a triangular one-day series in Zimbabwe in August-September with the West Indies as the third participating nation.
This is the first time that Pakistan will be playing a bilateral three-match T20 series against any team.
The news about the Zimbabwe cricket board inviting Pakistan and West Indies for a tri-series has caused concern in the Bangladesh cricket board whose team is placed eighth in the ICC ODI rankings.
The tri-series gives an opportunity to Pakistan and West Indies to improve their ODI rankings since the top-eight teams in the ODI rankings on September 31st this year will automatically qualify for the 2017 Champions Trophy.
