The schedule for Pakistan's second overseas tour (PAK vs NZL) since the Covid-19 pandemic has been finalized, with their visit to New Zealand over Christmas set to go ahead with virtually no deviation from the original FTP. The two teams will play three T20Is and two Tests from Dec 18-Jan 7 and each contest played at a different venue in NZL. It meant that the Pakistan cricket team led by Babar Azam won't need to spend their time in New Zealand in a bio-secure bubble during the tour. Here we analyze the Babar Azam-led team's complete schedule for T20s and Tests.

The relatively low rate of Covid-19 transmission in New Zealand means the bio-secure bubble will not be permitted during the quarantine period. As per the Covid-19 protocols mandated by the New Zealand government, the Pakistan squad will enter a two-week quarantine period in Lincoln city after the PAK team landed in the last week of November.

While New Zealand Cricket's chief executive David White had already confirmed both Pakistan and West Indies would tour the country as previously planned, the schedule for the Pakistan series is only now out. Auckland, Hamilton, and Napier will host the three T20Is to be played on December 18, 20, and 22, while Mount Maunganui hosts the Boxing Day Test. The Hagley Oval in Christchurch will be the venue for the second Test, which begins on January 3rd.
