Islamabad - Zimbabwe will become the first full ICC member nation to tour Pakistan in six years when it plays two Twenty20 internationals and three ODIs in Lahore from May 19-June 1.

No Test playing country has toured Pakistan because of security concerns since gunmen attacked the Sri Lanka cricket team's bus in Lahore in 2009.
