Karachi:

Pakistan on Sunday put back their tour to Zimbabwe, scheduled for December, to next year as it clashes with the limited over series against arch-rivals India.


"We have written to the Zimbabwe cricket board to put off the tour to next year as the dates were clashing with our tour to India," a Pakistan Cricket Board official told AFP.

Pakistan was due to tour Zimbabwe for two Tests, three one-day and two Twenty20 matches from early December.

India have invited Pakistan for a three one-day and two Twenty20 match series starting from December 25 -- the first bilateral series between the two countries since 2007.

India had stalled all bilateral cricket with Pakistan in the wake of the November 2008 attacks on its commercial hub Mumbai, attacks which killed 166 people.

New Delhi blamed the attacks on militants based in Pakistan and refused to send its team to Pakistan a month after the Mumbai attacks.

Since then India have played Pakistan in multi-national events only, the two recent matches were played in the World Cup in Mohali last year and the World Twenty20 Super Eights match in Colombo earlier this month.
