Pakistan will tour New Zealand over the festive period to play three T20I matches and a two-Test series.
The T20Is will be hosted in Auckland, Hamilton and Napier on 18, 20 and 22 December, respectively.
Mount Maungunui hosts the Boxing Day Test. The Hagley Oval in Christchurch will be the venue for the second Test, which begins on 3 January.
‘It’s always a pleasure to host the Pakistan cricket team in New Zealand and I know there will be a lot of interest in the Test and T20 series,’ NZC chief executive David White said. ‘Pakistan touring sides have been coming here since 1965 and many New Zealanders have grown up watching the likes of Hanif Mohammad, Majid Khan, Zaheer Abbas, Javed Miandad, Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis and, of course, the great Imran Khan in action. I’m sure the squads coming out here this summer will be similarly steeped in talent and class and will continue the great legacy that is Pakistan cricket.’
