HARARE- Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Shahryar Khan today cleared all rumors regarding Zimbabwe’s tour to Pakistan, saying the matches will be held as per schedule.

Shahryar said that President of Zimbabwe Cricket Union confirmed the tour via phone. Shahryar said the team is reaching Pakistan after clearance by the Zimbabwe government. The scheduled visit was earlier suspended after Wednesday's attack on Karachi's Ismaili community.

“Zimbabwe Cricket Chairman Wilson Manase called me three times to reaffirm that Zimbabwe would be touring Pakistan as per schedule,” said Shaharyar Khan. Zimbabwe are due to arrive in Pakistan on May 22 for three ODIs and two Twenty20 International matches.
