The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) on Friday revised the schedule of its men’s and women’s cricket teams’ limited-overs matches during their tour of Pakistan in October.
As per the announcement, all the matches will now be held in Rawalpindi.
“The schedule for England Men’s and England Women’s joint tour of Pakistan has been updated. All fixtures have been moved to Rawalpindi, and moved forward one day to assist with England Men’s and Pakistan Men’s preparations for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup,” the ECB said in a statement.
“The teams will travel together and will depart the UK on October 9. Both teams will play two T20Is, before the England Men’s team departs to Dubai, and England Women will take part in three ODIs,” it added.
