KARACHI: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is likely to postpone Pakistan's tour to Zimbabwe due to the dates clashing with the proposed tour of India, ESPNCricinfo reported.

"We have requested Zimbabwe to reschedule the series because of the India-Pakistan series," a PCB spokesman told ESPNcricinfo.

"They agreed to work out another plan to host us so there is no way the series will be canceled. Instead the PCB and Zimbabwe Cricket are in discussions make it happen next year."

Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) invited Pakistan for a series in December-January when England, who are due to tour India later this year, return home briefly for Christmas and New Year. Pakistan are scheduled to visit Zimababwe during the same period to play two Test matches, three One Day Internationals (ODIs) and two Twenty20s.

Pakistan is set to resume bilateral cricket ties with India after five years and last toured Zimbabwe in 2011. Dates for both the series are yet to be finalised.
