All the matches of the next month's three T20 Internationals as well as ODI series aganist Zimbabwe scheduled for 30 October have been shifted  to Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium that supposed to take place Lahore and Multan respectively.  

PCB made the decision of shifting T20 matches from Lahore to Rawalpindi as the air quality is deteriorating there.

The three T20Is, which were earlier scheduled at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore, will now be held at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium on November 7, 8 and 10. 

However, earlier this month, due to logistic reasons the Pakistan Cricket Board had shifted the three One-day Internationals from Multan to Rawalpindi . 

“The early onset of hazardous pollution and subsequent poor air quality meant that the risk to keep matches in Lahore at this stage was too great,” PCB chief executive Wasim Khan said in a statement.

The ODI series will be played on October 30, November 01 & 03 at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium while the three T20Is scheduled for November 7, 8 and 10.
