Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Friday, August 13 announced that England men and women cricket will visit Pakistan later this year, in October at Pindi Cricket Stadium.

England men’s cricket team will be touring Pakistan for two T20I’s in October at Pindi Cricket Stadium while the England women’s cricket team will be visiting Pakistan in the same month at the same venue for two T20I’s and three ODI’s.

However, the men and women cricket team will arrive in Islamabad on October 9. The touring party will play the T20I’s on October 13 and 14 with the matches to be held as doubleheaders.

This will be the last T20I series for England and Pakistan as their practice matches for World Cup and the men’s team will leave for Dubai on October 15 for the World Cup after completion of the series.

Meanwhile, England’s women’s cricket team will stay back in Pakistan for three ODI’s on October 17, 19, and 21 respectively. This will be England senior team’s (either men or women) first visit to Pakistan after 2005-06. 

Initially, the matches were scheduled to be played at National Stadium Karachi on October 14 and 15 but the venue and dates had to be rescheduled due to “operational and logistical reasons”.  

“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.
