Both teams will aim to score first while keeping an eye on the T20 World Cup that will begin next month.

The home squad will put everything on the line for an overwhelming victory in the series, England’s first in this nation in 17 years, as painful memories of their stunning loss in the Asia Cup final against Sri Lanka in Dubai are still fresh.

Four of the seven matches will be played in Karachi on September 20, 22, 23, and 25 while the remaining three will be played at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore on September 28, 30, and October 2 by the foreigners, who are visiting the nation for the first time since 2005.

The unusual seven-match series will provide both countries with the ideal springboard before the T20 World Cup in Australia, allowing them to test out various lineups for the major competition.

Due to an injury, England captain Jos Buttler won’t be able to play in any of the four games in Karachi; as a result, Ali will serve as captain.
