Zimbabwe suspended all sporting activities last week as part of the new COVID-19 regulations, following a spate of infections, but special permission was granted for the one-off Test, three one-day matches and three Twenty20 matches. All are played behind closed doors at the Harare Sports Club and the tour is held in a bio-safe bubble.
The tour starts with a test from 7 to 11 July, followed by the one-day matches that are part of the Super League that serves as a qualification for the next World Cup in India in 2023. The T20 matches are on 23 and 27 July.
