The PCB had earlier confirmed that England will play two T20Is in Pakistan on 14th and 15th October. Post that, they will leave for the T20 World Cup scheduled to take place in India.
The last time England toured Pakistan was in 2005 where both teams locked horns in five ODIs and two Tests. Pakistan emerged victorious in both series. These two teams last faced each other at Old Trafford on 20 September last year and again it was Pakistan that defeated Eoin Morgan’s men by five runs.
