England vs Pakistan 2021

The Pakistan cricket team will be the third team to tour England since the resumption of cricket post-COVID-19. After West Indies and Ireland played a single series of the Test and ODI formats respectively, England vs Pakistan 2020 will be the first encounter featuring two formats, Tests and T20Is.


The subcontinent side has reached England a month before the series begins and they have undergone the necessary quarantine and safety measures before beginning with their training and practice matches. The side looks ready to take on England at home in a 3-Test and 3-T20I series.


History


In 83 England vs Pakistan Tests so far, the Englishmen have gone 25 and lost 21, which signifies a fair contest over the span of 66 years since 1954. However, the worrying stat for the visiting side here is that in England, the home side has won 23 Tests and lost just 12.


They have won close to two times of what they have lost. Given the fact that there are a lot less drawn Tests in today's day and age, all three Tests might produce a result and Pakistan will have to be at their best to survive in those conditions.


In T20Is, these two teams have played just 15 matches with England winning 10, Pakistan winning 4 and one match ending in a tie. In England, out of 6 encounters among the two teams, England have won 4 and lost 2.


Format


The visiting side will be playing two practice matches before they face the England cricket team. The first ENG vs PAK Test will begin from 5 August, a day after England’s ODI series against Ireland comes to end. The side will be fielding two different sides for each format and the English have already announced their ODI squad which is unique to their Test side that played the West Indies. After the first Test at Manchester, the second and third Test starting from 13 and 21 August respectively, will be played at Southampton.


After a two-day break, the three T20Is will be played at Manchester with a day’s gap between each game. The tour will end on 1 September with the 3rd T20I.
