Karachi England will visit Pakistan in October next year for the two-match T20 International series for the first time in 16 years. Pakistan has visited England despite the growing outbreak of Coronavirus epidemic, in response to which England has decided to visit it. These two matches to be held on October 14 and 15 in Karachi will be part of the preparations for the 2021 T20 World Cup.
The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) both confirmed the tour on Wednesday, saying it would be before the T20 World Cup in India. The PCB invited England to visit Pakistan in January next year, but the ECB was forced to change the tour time due to unavailability of top players and matters related to expenses.

The way ahead will be clear

PCB chief executive Wasim Khan said that I am happy to confirm that England will visit Pakistan in October 2021 to play two T20 internationals. He said that this would be England’s first Pakistan tour in 16 years and this would pave the way for the Test and limited overs tour in the 2022-23 season. Wasim said that the team with the presence of England’s top players will arrive during the final part of our series against New Zealand. We also hope to tour Australia under the commitment of the future tour schedule of the 2021-22 season, while England will return for the Test and limited overs series in the 2022-23 season.Read also:
