Since the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 has been concluded, Pakistan, once again, are all set to host England for the historic three-match Test series between them. The men in green earlier hosted the World Cup winners for a seven-match T20I series before the marquee event.
With less than a month remaining since the Pak vs Eng starts, the venue uncertainties continue with the political instability at the already-decided venue. It is not sure that Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium will host the maiden Test match between the two sides.
The analysts believe that Karachi's National Stadium will be an alternative stadium to host the first Test between England and Pakistan from December 1st to 5th. It is relevant to mention here that the final test is already scheduled to take place at NSK, now called National Bank Cricket Arena Karachi.
As far as the second Test match is concerned, Multan Cricket Stadium is all set to host the guests.
Notably, the camp for the Pakistan squad for the first Test is supposed to be held from 24th November and onwards. At the same time, the guests are due to arrive on 27th November in Islamabad.
For the first test scheduled to take place from December 1st to 5th, Some experts state that Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium is given the green signal to host it. At the same time, others believe no final measures have been taken.
🥳 GOOD NEWS - There is no change in schedule of England's test tour to Pakistan which means first test match will be played at Pindi Cricket Stadium from 1Dec onwards. PCB has been given security clearance and test squad of England will land in Islamabad on 27Nov. #PAKvENG— Arfa Feroz Zake (@ArfaSays_) November 18, 2022
انگلینڈکے خلاف سیریز کا پہلا ٹیسٹ یکم دسمبرسے ہونا ہے لیکن ابھی تک وینیوہی فائنل نہیں ہوسکا،سب جانتے ہیں کہ راولپنڈی میں انعقاد ممکن نہیں ، اگر کراچی منتقل کرنا ہے تو کر دیں تاکہ انتظامات شروع کیے جا سکیں،تاخیر شکوک بڑھا رہی ہے،تاریخی سیریز کا انعقاد ہر صورت یقینی بنانا چاہیے— Saleem Khaliq (@saleemkhaliq) November 18, 2022
