Pakistan vs England Test series will take place in Rawalpindi, Multan, and Karachi as scheduled, Rawalpindi will host the first test match.
The first British test in 17 years in Pakistan will take place at Rawalpindi as originally scheduled. Potential political unrest sparked by a long march against the government led by former Prime Minister Imran Khan has raised prospects for a move to Karachi. I feel confident enough to continue. So the first Test he will be at Rawalpindi from 1 December and the second at Multan before the series ends in Karachi.
England are closely monitoring the situation and ECB security his adviser Reg Dickason recently announced that in September and October he will be in his T20 of his seven matches between the two countries. Following Pakistan to host the series of Tests, he is staying in the country to consider tour arrangements. Rawalpindi, the home of the Pakistani army, borders the capital Islamabad and has been the scene of protests after an attempted assassination of Khan at a rally more than two weeks ago. Khan fled with an injured right leg and is now planning a long march to the capital with the PTI (Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf – Movement for Justice Movement) party to call for new elections.
Amid public protests last week, the Quaid-e-Azam Cup match at Pindi Stadium between Sindh and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa was initially postponed by a day after the teams were unable to travel from their hotel to the stadium. It was discontinued shortly thereafter. 1 team of 5 scored a point. The final round of the competition, which began on November 14, included matches in Karachi, Lahore and Abbottabad, and Rawalpindi had no plans to host any more matches.
Given the timing of the long march, some uncertainty remains about the situation. No date has been set at this time, but the march is expected to end in Islamabad, the capital. On Friday, Khan told supporters of his party he would provide details about when the march will land in Islamabad on Saturday. He did not participate in the march because of his injury, but said he would participate in the march after arriving in Rawalpindi and consulting doctors. He said he expects “another attempt” on his life unless he does.
England have spend a week in Abu Dhabi before heading to Pakistan on 26 November.
