ENG vs PAK: As was initially intended, the first Test match that England has played in Pakistan in 17 years will take place in Rawalpindi. Karachi was being considered as a prospective relocation location due to the possibility of political turmoil that could be generated by an anti-government long march that was headed by Imran Khan, a former prime minister.
However, despite the ongoing instability of the political situation, the PCB feels secure enough in the current state of affairs to proceed with the plan that was first devised. This means that the first Test will begin on December 1 in Rawalpindi, while the second Test will take place in Multan before the series comes to a conclusion in Karachi.
ECB security advisor Reg Dickason was recently in the country to assess arrangements for the Test tour, which follows on from Pakistan staging a seven-match T20 series between the two countries in September and October. England has been keeping a close eye on the situation, and Dickason was recently in the country to evaluate the arrangements.
Rawalpindi, which is located close to Islamabad and is the location of Pakistan’s army headquarters, has been the site of demonstrations since the attempt on Khan’s life during a rally more than two weeks ago. Rawalpindi is located next to Islamabad. Khan was able to escape with injuries to his right leg, and he is already organizing, with his PTI (Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf) party, a long march to the capital city, seeking fresh elections.
The Quaid-e-Azam trophy match between Sindh and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa that was scheduled to take place at Pindi stadium the week before was first postponed for a day because the teams were unable to travel from their hotel to the stadium. The match was then abandoned entirely, and both sides were awarded five points regardless of the result.
Matches for the most recent round of the competition, which began on November 14, took place in Karachi, Lahore, and Abbottabad; however, Rawalpindi is not scheduled to host any additional games for the duration of the competition.
As a result of the timing of the lengthy march, there is still a significant amount of confusion about the current predicament. Although there is not already a predetermined schedule in place, the march is expected to conclude at Islamabad, which is the nation’s capital.
On Friday, Khan informed party supporters that he will make an announcement on Saturday regarding the specifics of when the march aims to arrive in Islamabad. He has not participated in the march due to the injuries he has sustained, but he has stated that he will join the march once it arrives in Rawalpindi, and after he has consulted with medical professionals.
In an interview with the Telegraph, he stated that he anticipates “another attempt” on his life and that this will occur unless action is taken by the Supreme Court of Pakistan.
Before departing for Pakistan on November 26, England stayed in Abu Dhabi for the duration of one week.
The 18-player roster that will represent Pakistan in the World Test Championship series that will be played against England in the coming weeks has been revealed.

Beginning on December 9, the second test match will be played in Multan. Beginning on December 17, the third and final test will be played at the National Stadium in Karachi. This match will be the last of its kind. It will be extremely important for Pakistan to win this series if they want to maintain their chances of competing in the final of the ICC World Test Championship 2021–2023 alive. With a point percentage of 51.85, the team captained by Baba Azam is currently in fifth place in the standings for the WTC.
