England will play two additional T20Is against hosts Pakistan during their tour of Pakistan in September/October next year.
The announcement was made by the board’s Chief Executive Board Tom Harrison following his meeting with the Chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Ramiz Raja.
The ECB official stated that he and his cricket board’s Senior Director Martin Darlow came to Lahore to have a face to face discussion over the events that led to the cancellation of the side’s tour to the country two months back.
“We also wanted to discuss the future as the two boards have a historic relationship and want to move the agenda towards a forward-looking one as opposed to one looking back,” Harrison was quoted saying in PCB’s press release. “We’re happy to announce that we’ll play two extra white-ball T20Is on our men’s tour of Pakistan in September/October 2022.”
He said: “We will then return after the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in Australia to complete the Test match element of that tour.”
