Pakistan national women cricket team will play 3 ODI and T20I with Sri Lanka in May-June this year and these games will be counted towards the ICC Women’s Championship and these games will be played in Karachi.
This will be the first series for the Pakistan Women team at home since West indies toured back in December 2018.
This series will be the first for the Women after the COVID-19 pandemic back in 2020 and also the first series to kickstart the third edition of the ICC Women’s Championship to run from 2022 to 2025.
Pakistan Women captain Bismah Maroof said “It is a great privilege for us to play the ICC Women’s Championship on our home soil and the side is very excited to welcome Sri Lanka. This edition provides us an opportunity to start fresh and make the most of the home advantage. I am sure the team will perform to their fullest potential and the Pakistan cricket fans, who have extended us great support, will get to see better and consistent results.”
At the end of the tour, Pakistan will be heading to Ireland for the T20I tri-series along with the hosts and world champions Australia before they play the eight-team Commonwealth Games.
As more cricket is coming to Pakistan home for both men and women, this is the time to play some good cricket and start winning after the poor performance in World Cup to uplift themselves before heading for further games towards the coming year.
The Sri Lankan and Pakistani teams will arrive in Karachi on May 19 for the three T20Is on May 24, 26 and 28 followed by the ODIs on June 1, 3 and 4.
Players and officials along with other participants, will undergo on-arrival tests and will be expected to follow the SOPs to protect themselves from the virus. Anybody who tests positive will be required to undergo five days of isolation.
