While confirming that Pakistan has agreed to participate in the T20 tri-nation series in New Zealand, Ramiz Raja, chairman Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said, “Before the 1992 World Cup, the side had arrived in Australia a month ago and we had ample opportunity to prepare for matches by playing against the local teams. I was behind PCB’s international department to somehow find a way that our team can play six to seven games before the World Cup. The pitches in New Zealand also have bounce and pace, the side will benefit from playing matches there.”

I missed the last series in New Zealand due to a thumb injury and look forward to playing cricket in Christchurch against two good oppositions.”
