Australia and Pakistan will visit Zimbabwe to play a tri-nation T20 series in July 2018. The Australian team has had four tours of Zimbabwe in the past and are currently the second ranked in ICC T20I team rankings.
The Pakistani team has made eight tours of Zimbabwe since 1992. They are the top ranked team in the ICC T20I team rankings and are expected to provide a tough competition to Australia and will also enter as the tournament favorites.
The three nation tournament is scheduled to be a double round robin where each team will play the other team twice. The top two teams will qualify for the finals and the team to win three out of the four matches will qualify with ease.
The matches of the tournament are scheduled to take place at the Harare Sports Club which has a capacity to accommodate about 10000 spectators.
The tournament will start on July 1 where the hosts Zimbabwe will take on Pakistan. The Australian team will play its first match on July 2 against Pakistan. The subsequent matches will take place daily before the final, which is scheduled to take place on July 8, 2018.
