Pakistan Cricket Board today announced its men’s side will play 10 additional T20Is against New Zealand in the 2023-24 season as part of its strategic decision to provide best preparation opportunities for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024.
Following three ICC World Test Championship matches in Australia from 14 December to 7 January, Pakistan will travel to New Zealand for five T20Is, which will kick-start their T20 World Cup preparations. These matches will be held from 12-21 January.
The schedule is:
- 12 Jan – 1st T20I, Auckland
- 14 Jan – 2nd T20I, Hamilton
- 17 Jan – 3rd T20I, Dunedin
- 19 Jan – 4th T20I, Christchurch

In turn, New Zealand will make a return visit to Pakistan in April 2024 for five T20Is to fill the vacant window. Details of the series will be released closer to time.
