Zimbabwe reach Pakistan sans Rajput

Zimbabwe's cricket squad arrived in Pakistan on Tuesday -- minus their Indian coach, who had been advised to stay away from the rival South Asian nation.

Zimbabwe are scheduled to play three ODIs in Rawalpindi on October 30, November 1 and 3, and three T20Is in Lahore on November 7, 8 and 10. For now, The players will complete a mandatory quarantine period.

Pakistan had granted Zimbabwe coach Lalchand Rajput a visa, but he did not travel as per his government's advice.

"Zimbabwe head coach Rajput will miss the Pakistan tour after Indian embassy in Harare wrote to us asking that Rajput, who is an Indian national, be exempted from visiting Pakistan," a Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) statement read.

In Rajput's absence, bowling coach Douglas Hondo will supervise Zimbabwe for the tour, with allrounder Chamu Chibhabha at the helm.
