Several major players of the New Zealand Cricket Team are about to miss the Pakistan tour to play in the T-20 series. The significant Kiwi players might not be able to play in the T20I series against Pakistan in April.

This is because they have to play in the Indian Premier League (IPL). During the New Zealand tour to Pakistan, major players like Kane Williamson and Daryl Mitchell will miss this tournament. Lockie Ferguson, Rachin Ravindra, and Trent Boult are also among them. Hence, they all will be playing in the IPL.

New Zealand’s tour of Pakistan will take place from April 14 to April 28. The five-match series will take place in Lahore and Rawalpindi. Here is a schedule of the Pakistani Cricketers Future Tours Programme for 2024:

  • New Zealand will play against Pakistan in five Twenty20 matches in April.
  • Pakistan will also play against the Netherlands three T20Is, two T20sI against Ireland, and four T20sI against England in May.
  • ICC Men’s T20 World Cup USA/West Indies 2024 in June
  • Bangladesh will play two Tests against Pakistan in August.
  • The UK will play three Tests against Pakistan in October.
