HARARE, Zimbabwe (AP) -- Zimbabwe Cricket chairman Wilson Manase says Pakistan's incoming tour will go ahead next month with a revised schedule.
Pakistan was set for a monthlong visit from Aug. 17, then reportedly decided to delay the limited-overs series so as not to jeopardize its qualification for the 2017 Champions Trophy, which will be based on team rankings on Sept. 30. For now, Pakistan has the eighth and final qualifying spot.
But Manase said Pakistan will still come next month for a tour that was agreed to after Zimbabwe traveled to Pakistan in May, ignoring its own government's safety advice to become the first test nation to play in the country for six years.
Zimbabwe first hosts New Zealand for three one-day internationals and a one-off Twenty20 from Sunday.
