Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) officials welcomed the visiting team at the airport. Players of the Zimbabwe team – who are visiting the country after five years – will spend their first week (Oct 21 to 27) in quarantine in Islamabad.
The team left on Monday morning from their home country with a travelling squad of 20 players.
Pakistan face Zimbabwe in three One-day Internationals — all matches being staged in Rawalpindi from Oct 30 – followed by as many T20 Internationals in Lahore from Nov 7 to 10.
