The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) have announced the fixtures for the men’s Test series against England in October. The Three Lions will be arriving in Pakistan in the hope of replicating their sensational 3-0 whitewash the last time they visited in 2022.

Pakistan and England will lock horns in the first Test in Multan from October 7-11. The two teams will then move to Karachi for the second Test from October 15-19. The series will come to a head in Rawalpindi as the third Test will be played from October 24-28.

The series forms part of the ICC World Test Championship (WTC) 2023-25 for the 2023-2025 cycle. England are in desperate need of wins in the competition as they are languishing at the foot of the table, having just three wins, six losses, and one draw from 10 games. They will have a chance to improve their standing as they play three home Tests each against the West Indies and Sri Lanka before embarking on the tour of Pakistan.

“We’re really excited to be returning to Pakistan for this three-match men’s Test tour in October,” said ECB Chief Executive Officer Richard Gould. “Our last men’s Test tour of Pakistan produced some memorable matches and I’m sure fans can look forward to more exciting cricket across this forthcoming series.”

Meanwhile, Pakistan are better placed on the WTC points table, having registered two wins and three losses in five games. They are positioned at No. 5 behind India, Australia, New Zealand, and Sri Lanka.

Pakistan’s upcoming assignment is a two-match Test series at home against Bangladesh. The Bangla Tigers are going through a transition phase and the hosts would be backing themselves to gain full points from this series.
