Pakistan will play two Twenty20 Internationals, three One-Day Internationals and two Tests in Harare and Bulawayo between 23rd August and 14th September.

Pakistan will arrive in Zimbabwe on 19th August and Harare will host all matches except the second Test, which gets underway on 10th September.

Zimbabwe have just completed a home series against India, where they were beaten 5-0 in a one-sided series of contests and they will be hoping they can improve against Pakistan.

In 2011, Pakistan toured Zimbabwe in one of the first series in the country after Zimbabwe returned to the Test-playing fold, winning the only Test by seven wickets.

They went on to win the ODI series 3-0 and the Twenty20 series 2-0 to complete a clean sweep but they were pushed hard on occasion, Zimbabwe getting within five runs in the opening ODI and the final T20.
