Pakistan announce England series programme

Pakistan announced on Thursday a complete programme of their series against top-ranked Test team England, to be played in the United Arab Emirates in January-February.

The series, which is played in UAE because Pakistan cannot hold games on home soil over security fears, consists of three Tests, four one-day internationals and three Twenty20 internationals.

Pakistan will also host Sri Lanka in UAE for three Tests, five one-dayers and one Twenty20 international in October-November this year.

England, who deposed India from the top of the world Test rankings, will play their first Test series as number ones against Pakistan from January 17, in Dubai.

The second Test will be in Abu Dhabi (January 25-29) before the two teams return to Dubai (February 3-7) for the third and final Test.
