Canada set to play ODIs in Zimbabwe

Canada are set to play their first major overseas series against a Full Member country when they tour Zimbabwe for four ODIs in March

Canada are set to play their first major overseas series against a Full Member country when they tour Zimbabwe for four ODIs in March. The matches form part of their preparations for the ICC World Cup Qualifiers in April.

The games, which are likely to all be played in Harare, will take place between March 18 and 26.

The original plan had been for Canada to play against a Zimbabwe A side, but after discussions between the two boards, the itinerary was changed to accommodate the ODIs.

The teams last met in a Twenty20 tournament in Toronto last October when Canada tied with Zimbabwe in the first match before losing a bowl off.
