Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has announced the schedule for the tour of England next year.

The Green Shirts will play three Tests and as many T20Is in a five-week-long tour from July 30 till September 2.

The board announced the tour dates in a press release on Wednesday.

The Test series against England will be Pakistan’s last World Test Championship (WTC) assignment.

The team will then take on Sri Lanka and Bangladesh in October and January with a tour of Australia sandwiched in between.

The T20 series will help Man in Green prepare for the ICC T20 World Cup in Australia in October next year.

The inaugural Test will be played at the iconic Lord’s ground. Pakistan emerged victorious in its last two outings here.

The second and third Tests will be played at Old Trafford in Manchester.

England’s return tour of Pakistan in 2022 will be a split affair.

The three-match ODI series is scheduled for October, and three Test Championship matches in December.

The three-match T20I series will be a platform for the former champions to prepare for next year’s Men’s T20 World Cup in Australia.

The Test series kicks off at Lord’s on July 30 while the second Test will be played from August 7 in Manchester.

The third and final game of the three-match series will be played in Nottingham on August 20.

The first T20I series begins on August 29 in Leeds. The second and third game will be played on August 31 and September 2 respectively.

Since 2016, Pakistan have toured England every year. The side emerged victorious in the Champions Trophy 2017. The two-match Test series against England ended in a 1-1 draw.

“The next year’s tour will go down as Pakistan’s fourth Test tour of England this decade and the sixth this century.”
