Ahead of the Pakistan men’s cricket team’s tour of England, Scotland and Ireland, the British High Commissioner Thomas Drew said:

I wish Pakistan’s cricket team the very best as it begins a tour of England, Scotland and Ireland. I hope they have an excellent summer of cricket. This is a historic series, including being Ireland’s first ever Test opponent.

I hope it is not too long before I can wish an England cricket team a successful tour of Pakistan.

Pakistan will start its tour with a practice match against Kent on April 28, followed by the second match against Northamptonshire on May 4. They will play against Ireland, who will be playing their first ever Test match, on May 11 and then against England for two Test matches on May 24 and June 1. At the end of the tour, Pakistan will play two ODIs against Scotland.

Pakistan last toured England in 2016 where they played a four-match Test series (a 2-2) draw, a five match ODI series (which England won) and a T20 match (which Pakistan won).
