Zimbabwe will host Australia and Pakistan in a T20I triangular series in July.
This comes a couple of weeks after Zimbabwe Cricket sacked their captain and entire coaching staff after the Africa side failed to qualify for next year’s World Cup.
Streak and his entire coaching staff included batting coach Lance Klusener, bowling coach Douglas Hondo, fielding coach Walter Chawaguta, team analyst Stanley Chiwoza and strength and conditioning coach Sean Bell.
After the triangular series, Pakistan will stay behind for five ODI matches against Zimbabwe.
The triangular series will be played at Harare Sports Club, while Bulawayo’s Queens Sports Club will host the ODI series.
‘Following months of negotiations, we are pleased to confirm we will be hosting a T20I triangular series involving Australia and Pakistan, followed by an ODI series against Pakistan,’ said Zimbabwe cricket managing director Faisal Hasnain.
‘Playing two of the game’s biggest teams will provide us with a very welcome litmus test as we forge ahead with our plans to develop a stronger Zimbabwe side capable of consistently competing and winning against the best,’ he added.
Zimbabwe and Pakistan will get the T20I series underway on Sunday, 1 July, with Australia and Pakistan playing each other the following day.
Each team will play four matches in a round-robin format, with the top two sides meeting in the final scheduled for Sunday, 8 July.
The five ODI matches between Zimbabwe and Pakistan are scheduled for 13, 16, 18, 20 and 22 July.
