Karachi, Apr 21 : Ahead of September's ICC Champions Trophy, New Zealand will tour Pakistan for a short ODI series, a PCB spokesman said here last evening.
"They have confirmed they want to play the three games but they want to do it closer to the Champions Trophy so an itinerary is now being worked out," the Daily Times quoted him as saying.
Pakistan, who are hosting the Champions Trophy, have invited New Zealand as part of their efforts to arrange international games following Australia's decision to postpone their tour to Pakistan in March-April for security reasons.
The spokesman also said that Pakistan had also invited West Indies for a one-day series in August but they had declined because of commitments in Canada.
