Wellington: Zimbabwe’s tour will mark their first visit to New Zealand since 2005 after which the then Labour Government banned such tours in protest against Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe.

The international schedule for 2011-12 was confirmed. Zimbabwe will play one test, three one-day internationals and two Twenty20 matches here from January 26 to February 14.

South Africa follows for three Twenty20 matches, three one-dayers and three tests from February 17 to March 27.

Cobham Oval in Whangarei, which has met International Cricket Council standards, will host its first international when New Zealand play a one-dayer there against Zimbabwe on February 6, stuff.co.nz reports.

New Zealand Cricket chief executive Justin Vaughan said the schedule for the home season offered a good mix of formats, strong competition for the national side and a good spread of cricket around the country for fans.

The New Zealand Government this month lifted a travel ban imposed on Zimbabwe to make the tour possible.
