Pak vs NZ: PCB shifts Multan test to Karachi amid weather concerns

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided to relocate the second Test match between Pakistan and New Zealand from Multan to Karachi due to inclement weather and aircraft delays.

According to local media reports, the PCB consulted with the NZ cricket board before taking the decision and they did not object to Karachi hosting the second Test.

The Pakistani team’s management and players were also made aware of the second Test’s new location.

The first Test was planned to take place at the National Bank Cricket Arena in Karachi from December 26 to 30, while the second was slated for Multan from January 3 to 7.

Earlier on Thursday, the New Zealand cricket squad arrived in Karachi for the two Test matches and three ODIs against Pakistan.

The Black Caps will play three One-Day Internationals in Karachi from January 10 to 14 following the conclusion of the Test series.

New Zealand suspended its trip to the country due to security worries that baffled the country’s citizens in September 2021, just before the Black Caps’ first scheduled game in Pakistan in 18 years.
