Pakistan and England are scheduled to play three Test matches in Rawalpindi, Multan, and Karachi from December 1 to 21. The series will be the part of ongoing ICC Test Championship 2021-23.
The hosts will be keen to win all three matches to move a step closer to securing a spot in the Championship final, while the visitors’ chances for the final are almost none after losing to the West Indies earlier this year.
