The England cricket team will once again undertake a historic tour of Pakistan after 16 years, where it will play a two-match T20 series with the hosts on October 14 and 15 next year. Both teams will leave for India on October 16 after the two-match T20 series, where they will take part in the T20 World Cup.

ECB chief executive Tom Harrison said, "England's team will visit Pakistan for the first time since 2005. It is a real pleasure to announce that the England team will play a two-match series in Pakistan in October 2021 and the same team will be in India. I will play T20 World Cup. "
