The England & Wales Cricket Board can confirm that the Pakistan menโ€™s cricket team will arrive in the United Kingdom on Sunday 28 June to start preparation for this summerโ€™s tour of England, which includes three Test matches and three Vitality IT20s. The behind-closed-doors schedule for these fixtures will be announced in due course.

They will start a 14-day isolation period at New Road, Worcester before transferring to Derbyshireโ€™s The Incora County Ground on Monday 13 July to accelerate their preparation ahead of the first Test, which will include two four-day internal warm-up matches.

All members of the tour party will have been tested prior to travel. Those who are testing positive for COVID-19 will not be permitted to travel with the advance group on Sunday.
