England’s cricket team arrived in Pakistan on Thursday, breaking a 17-year hiatus since the two nations last met in the host country, for a seven-match Twenty20 (T20) series against the home side, which will be played in Lahore and Karachi.

The series is expected to be played in front of sellout crowds at each venue, and broadcast live worldwide. The tour was cancelled earlier due to security concerns.

Police authorities told reporters that tight security measures were taken for the visiting team during their drive from the Karachi airport to the hotel. The English team arrived in Karachi this morning through Dubai on an Emirates flight.

Pakistan and England are scheduled to play seven Twenty20 Internationals in Karachi and Lahore between September 20 and October 2. The first four matches of the series will be played in Karachi, and the last three will be played in Lahore.

Both sides are approaching the series as a final test before the T20 World Cup. England, who won the ODI World Cup in 2013 and are currently ranked number two in the T20 format by the ICC, are considered the favourites to win the tournament according to online betting platforms available at www.sportwetten-vergleich.at.

According to reliable sources, the National Stadium has completed preparations for the upcoming cricket series. The authorities further declared, “Four pitches have been prepared for the series on the ground.”

Pakistan Squad

Pakistan cricket team recently lost to Sri Lanka in the final of the Asia Cup, has made some changes in their squad for the upcoming series against England.

The selectors picked all the players who will travel for the World Cup except Fakhar Zaman and Shaheen Shah Afridi. Aamir Jamal, an all-rounder, and Abrar Ahmed, a young leg-spinner, have been added in place of them.

Speaking to the media, Muhammad Wasim – the chief selector – stated, “We have a team that can do well at the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022. We have placed our trust and confidence in practically the same group of players on the T20I team since the UAE World Cup in 2021.


It took a long time, but the wait seemed worth it. The tour is a significant leap forward in bringing cricket back to Pakistan.

In conclusion, the England tour is an excellent opportunity for Pakistani fans from all around the country to witness great memories and express their love for cricket.
