England To Tour Pakistan In October, PCB Confirms
In October, the Pakistan Cricket Board confirmed that the England men’s team will play two T20Is at the Pindi Cricket Stadium in Rawalpindi. During the same month, the England women’s team will play two T20Is and three ODIs against the Pakistan women’s team at the same site.
Arriving in Islamabad on October 9
On October 9, the England men’s and women’s teams will arrive in Islamabad. Following that, the touring teams will play T20Is on October 13 and 14, with the matches being split into two halves. The England men’s squad will depart for Dubai on October 15 when the T20I series is completed.
The England women’s team, on the other hand, will remain at home and play three one-day internationals on October 17, 19, and 21. This will be the first visit to Pakistan by an England senior team (men or women) since 2005-06. The matches were originally slated to take place on October 14 and 15 at Karachi’s National Stadium, but had to be rescheduled due to “operational and logistical problems.”
“We are delighted to welcome both the England men’s team for what will be their first tour to Pakistan since 2005 and the England women’s team, who will be touring Pakistan for the first time. Both are additional tours with England men’s side scheduled to return to Pakistan in the last quarter of 2022 for white-ball and ICC World Test Championship fixtures,” PCB Chief Executive Wasim Khan said.
