England are set to tour Pakistan for an action-packed seven-match T20I series ahead of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022.
For the first time in 17 years, England are set to visit Pakistan to play a bumper seven-match T20I series in September-October 2022. Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced the fixture list for the series today (2 August).
The series begins on 20 September in Karachi, where the two sides will play the first four games before the action heads to Lahore for the last three T20Is.
The limited-overs series will be vital to both sides for their preparation ahead of this year’s ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in October-November. England and Pakistan are the second and third-ranked teams in the ICC Men’s T20I Team Rankings currently and are also among the favourites for the marquee event later this year in Australia.
The T20I series will be the first leg of England’s tour as they will return after the T20 World Cup for a Test series in December. The three-match could have massive World Test Championship implications, especially for Pakistan who are vying for a top two spot in the standings.
