The two boards will continue to work together to finalise the series dates, which will be announced in due course, the PCB stated.
New Zealand will make up for this year’s abandoned tour of Pakistan by playing 10 white-ball matches in April 2023, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said on Monday.
New Zealand aborted its limited-overs tour to Pakistan in September due to security fears just before the toss in the first one-day international was due to take place at Rawalpindi. England followed the New Zealand decision by also abandoning its short tour to Pakistan just before the Twenty20 World Cup in October.
New Zealand’s tour in April 2023 comprises five ODIs and five Twenty20s. Dates and venues have not been determined.
The PCB also said that New Zealand will tour Pakistan in December 2022 to play two Test matches as part of the World Test Championship and will also play three ODIs which will count towards qualification for the 2023 World Cup in India.
The PCB said the twin tours by New Zealand to Pakistan were finalised after successful negotiations between PCB chairman Ramiz Raja and his New Zealand Cricket counterpart, Martin Snedden.

"I am pleased with the outcomes of our discussions and negotiations, and thank Martin Snedden and his board for their understanding and support,” Raja said.
NZC chief executive David White said heads of both cricket boards “had very fruitful and constructive discussions while in Dubai, further strengthening the bond between the two organisations.”
Pakistan is now set to host Australia, West Indies, England and New Zealand between March 2022 and April 2023 for eight test matches, 14 ODIs and 13 Twenty20s.
International teams had mostly stayed away from Pakistan since an attack by Islamist militants on the Sri Lanka team bus in Lahore in 2009 that killed six policemen and two civilians. That forced Pakistan's national teams to play "home" matches outside the country for more than six years.
Pakistan this month swept West Indies in a three-match T20 series. A three-match ODI series between the same sides was postponed to next June due to a coronavirus outbreak on the West Indies team.
The New Zealand cricket team will play three ICC Men's Cricket World Cup Super League ODIs and five T20Is on their first tour of Pakistan in 18 years, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said on Thursday while announcing the schedule of the upcoming tour.
The Board of Governors of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Wednesday "unanimously accepted" the resignation of chief executive Wasim Khan. Wasim had joined the PCB on a three-year contract on Feb.1, 2019.
