Harare hosts Pakistani, one-day cricket series

Harare Sports Club will now host all the six one-day matches between a Zimbabwe Select side and the touring Pakistan Shaheens team.

The series opener was initially scheduled for Takashinga Cricket Club, but Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) has decided to move the game to allow for ongoing refurbishments at the Highfield ground to be completed first.

The dates remain unchanged, with the one-dayers now all being played at Harare Sports Club on 17, 19, 21, 23, 25 and 27 May.

Tickets are going for US$2 to enjoy the action from anywhere in the ground except the Centurion where admission is pegged at US$10, while senior citizens and children in school uniform will enter free of charge.

ZC arranged the 50-over series against the Pakistani side to help Zimbabwe fine-tune for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Qualifier 2023 that will be staged across four venues in Harare and Bulawayo from 18 June to 9 July.

The event will see 10 teams competing for the two remaining places at the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 in India later in the year.
