The Austrian national squad, which recently took part in the ICC World T20 European sub-regional qualifiers in Netherlands, will tour Pakistan to leverage the state-of-the-art coaching facilities in Pakistan. Pakistan National Cricket Academy (NCA) were also involved with providing coaching sessions to Serbia and Denmark national squads, earlier this year.
The MoU was signed between Chairman PZ, Mr. Javed Afridi and Chairman, ACA, Mr. Muhammad Ashfaaq in Vienna. Both parties will benefit from this initiative as Zalmi extends full support to the ACA to promote cricket through @ZalmiGlobal. Austrian team will visit Pakistan soon. pic.twitter.com/T2W2XovJEo
