PCB Chief Executive Wasim Khan issued a statement on Friday that after the sudden deterioration in the quality of air and further expected air pollution in next month they have decided to shift the matches which were earlier scheduled in Lahore. This rescheduling of the T20I series will also affect the remaining four matches of PSL which will now be held in National Stadium Karachi. Earlier the ODI series against Zimbabwe was shifted from Multan to Rawalpindi due to the logistical as well as operational challenges. The ODI series will start on Friday, 30th October 2020. Pakistan’s record against Zimbabwe is very impressive. Both the team have played 59 ODIs till data and Pakistan has managed to win 52 matches with an impressive 92.10 win percentage. In T20I Pakistan and Zimbabwe have come face to face 11 times and all the matches have been won by Green Shirts.
