The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has announced that England will tour Pakistan in 2022 for a seven-match Twenty20 International series and a three-match Test series. England was supposed to play a five-match T20I series and a three-match Test series, but the two cricket boards decided to play two extra T20Is as a consolation for England canceling their brief tour of the country just over a month ago.
England will tour Pakistan for a seven-match Twenty20 International series in September and October of next year before flying to Australia for the 2022 T20 World Cup. England’s Test team will then return to Pakistan for a three-match Test series in November/December.
The World Test Championship will include the series.
Following a meeting between England and Wales Cricket Board Chief Executive Tom Harrison and PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja in Lahore on Tuesday, the two cricket boards agreed to play two additional T20Is.
Tom Harrison expressed his delight that the two cricket boards were able to bridge the gap following England’s cancellation of their tour and expressed hope that the two teams’ relationship will grow even stronger in the coming years.
Ramiz stated that the ECB’s decision to tour Pakistan is warmly welcomed and that the entire country is excited to host one of the best teams in the world. He stated that the PCB is grateful to the ECB for its generosity.
