LAHORE - Pakistan will host New Zealand in a limited overs series in its home series in UAE on November 3-13. According to the itinerary announced by the PCB, Pakistan will play New Zealand in three One-day Internationals in Abu Dhabi from November 3 to 9 followed by two Twenty20 games in Dubai on November 12 and 13. Pakistan was supposed to host New Zealand for a full series this year but the Kiwis refused to tour the country because of security apprehensions. Later, the cricket boards of the two countries decided to split the series into two parts with the first leg taking place in UAE followed by the Test series in New Zealand in November-December. The ODI series has been reduced from four to three matches to accommodate two-day rests between the games. That was done on the request of New Zealand Cricket which did not agree with the initial schedule of the series prepared by the PCB, finding it too hectic. The PCB wanted to host four one-dayers in Abu Dhabi within seven days but NZC said that it wanted longer breaks for its cricketers. The PCB also accommodated New Zealand on another front by fixing the entire series within a span of ten days in November to allow Kiwis to feature in the inaugural Champions League planned for October in India. The fixtures: Nov 3: 1st ODI D/N in Abu Dhabi Nov 6: 2nd ODI D/N in Abu Dhabi Nov 9: 3rd ODI D/N in Abu Dhabi Nov 12: T20 in Dubai Nov 13: T20 in Dubai
