Rawalpindi, Multan, and Karachi will serve as hosts for the three-match series that will contribute towards the World Test Championship. The schedule for England’s test visit of Pakistan was approved by the Pakistan Cricket Board in December of this year.
The last time England competed in a Test series in Pakistan was 17 years ago. The upcoming Test series, which will consist of three matches, will make up the second part of England’s tour of Pakistan. The first leg of the competition will consist of seven Twenty20 Internationals, which will be played between September 20 and October 2 at Karachi and Lahore.
1st Test to be held in Rawalpindi from December 1-5.
9-13 December – 2nd Test, Multan
17-21 December – 3rd Test, Karachi
The most recent time that England travelled to Pakistan was in November and December of 2005, during which the hosts defeated the tourists by a score of 2-0. The last time England triumphed in a Test match while playing in Pakistan was in the year 2000, when the squad led by Nasser Hussain won the third Test match in Multan to take a 1-0 lead in the series.
“We are overjoyed that the Pakistan vs. England Test rivalry, which has a long history of producing nail-bitingly close contests, will be played in our backyards once again in December. Since their previous match in Pakistan in 2005, both teams have progressed, and as of late, they have been playing entertaining and thrilling cricket. The match will take place in Pakistan. I have every reason to believe that this series will live up to the anticipation of cricket fans all over the world who are looking forward to watching and taking pleasure in matches that are intense and competitive “according to Zakir Khan, who is the Director of International Cricket for the PCB.
The European Central Bank’s Interim Chief Executive Officer, Clare Connor, added: “It will be an important moment in our country’s history when our men’s Test squad travels to Pakistan for the first time since 2005. After such a lengthy absence, the chance to play a game of Test cricket in front of cricket fans who are truly devoted to the sport in Pakistan is something that should be treasured. Over the past few months, we have been working extremely closely with the PCB, and I would want to express my gratitude to them for everything they have done, and continue to do, to make our upcoming Test and Twenty20 tours an exciting prospect for everyone concerned.”
