Pakistan is going on a tour of the Netherlands to play three one-day internationals in August, a series that has been postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Pakistan Cricket Board announced on Wednesday. “The Pakistan cricket team will play three one-day internationals in Rotterdam in August as part of the World Cup Super League,” said a statement from the Pakistan Cricket Board.

“We are pleased that we have been able to reschedule the series, which is important for the growth and development of cricket in the Netherlands,” said PCB director of international cricket Zakir Khan.
“Our men’s national cricket team had an excellent 2021-22 season and I am confident that they will continue to build momentum to entertain expat Pakistanis and the Dutch spectators with good cricket.”
