LAHORE: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Management Committee Chairman Najam Sethi on Saturday said that there will be a "slight change" in the schedule for the home New Zealand T20I and ODI series.

"There will be a slight change in the schedule due to general elections in Punjab," Sethi said during a press conference at Gaddafi Stadium today.

New Zealand are scheduled to play five T20Is and as many ODIs in Karachi, Lahore, and Rawalpindi from April 13 to May 7.

But, there will be a slight change in the schedule due to general elections in Punjab on April 30.

"New Zealand series will take place on its time," Sethi said, adding that the series was set to start in Karachi while moving to Lahore and Rawalpindi later on. 

He revealed that there will be some changes to this now. "We will announce the details next week," he said.
