Pakistan’s stadiums saw very long isolation, but they are now again being brought back to life by domestic and international cricket. England’s men team is scheduled to tour Pakistan to play some good cricket games, but this news got even better when ECB announced that the women cricket team would also be accompanying them.
The England women team and Pakistan women team will face each other in two t20is and three Odis.
The schedule is as followed:
Fixture: Pakistan vs. England -1st t20i
Date: 14th October 2021
Fixture: Pakistan vs. England -2nd t20i
Date: 15th October 2021
Fixture: Pakistan vs. England- 1st ODI
Date: 18th October 2021
Fixture: Pakistan vs. England -2nd ODI
Date: 20th October 2021
Fixture: Pakistan vs. England- 3rd ODI
Date: 22nd October 2021
Wasim Khan, the CEO of PCB, also showed his excitement through a press release.
“This announcement reflects the confidence, trust, and relationship the PCB enjoys with the England and Wales Cricket Board and is an acknowledgment for the successful delivery of international and domestic cricket in the challenging and difficult 2020. Women’s T20Is taking place before the men’s matches at the iconic National Stadium will mean more eyeballs will follow these matches than ever before.
While this presents a great opportunity for the PCB to showcase the image and profile of women’s cricket, it is a chance for the women cricketers to demonstrate their talent and skills and play their part in attracting, inspiring, and motivating the next generation of women cricketers so that they can also fall in love with this great sport.
The three ODIs against the world champions will assist the Pakistan women’s side to access, gauge and fine-tune their ICC Women’s World Cup 2022 preparations to produce improved performances than in the past. Like the England men’s side, I am confident the women’s tour will open up opportunities for their future tours that will further contribute in promoting women’s cricket in Pakistan and helping our national side to narrow the gap with the leading nations.”
