England to tour Pakistan for the first time in 16 years

Friday, 13 August 2021 (18:34 IST)
Lahore: England men's team will take on Pakistan in two T20Is at the Pindi Cricket Stadium in Rawalpindi in October, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced on Friday.

The England women's team will also play two T20Is and three ODIs against the Pakistan women's team during the same month at the same venue.

Eoin Morgan’s side, along with Heather Knight’s team, will arrive in Islamabad on October 9.

After the completion of the T20I series, the England men's squad will leave for Dubai on October 15.

However, the England women's side will stay back for the three ODIs, to be played on October 17,19 and 21 respectively.

The matches were earlier scheduled to take place at the National Stadium, Karachi, on October 14 and 15 but 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.
