Pakistan V New Zealand in UAE

Cricket legends headed for Dubai and Abu Dhabi in October and November

Abu Dhabi and Dubai will co-host Pakistan's limited-overs series against New Zealand in October and November, the Pakistan Cricket Board said on Monday, according to a story on Reuters.

The final match dates have yet to be approved but PCB Chairman Ejaz Butt said four one-day internationals would be played in Abu Dhabi while two Twenty20s would be held in Dubai.

"I have had fruitful and constructive meetings with the emirate cricket officials last week and we will be sending the final itinerary to cricket New Zealand for approval," Butt told reporters in Lahore.

"Once we get approval from Cricket New Zealand we will announce the final dates but the series will be held some time in October-November."

Pakistan were due to host New Zealand both in tests and limited-overs matches but the matches were moved because of ongoing security concerns.

The test series will now be played in New Zealand from mid-November while the remaining games will be played in the United Arab Emirates, which also played host to Pakistan's matches against Australia earlier this year.
