The Pakistan cricket team began their 2020 season with some fantastic performances against Bangladesh. They defeated the Bangla Tigers 2-0 in the 3-match T20I series and also won the one-off Test match.

The Men in Green then stayed away from the international arena for months. They came back to battle England in an ICC World Test Championship series away from home. The Pakistan cricket team lost the 3-match series by 0-1.

Next, Pakistan tied the 3-match T20I series with England 1-1. They returned home to host Zimbabwe for a limited-overs tour. As expected, the Pakistan cricket team dominated their African rivals at home.

Pakistan ended the year with a New Zealand tour. They lost the T20I series by 1-2. Next, the Kiwis defeated them by 101 runs in the Boxing Day Test match. The Men in Green have an opportunity to improve their record in all formats this year.

Here's a look at their complete international schedule for 2021.
