Karachi: The first T20 match between Pakistan and England will be played at National Stadium Karachi on Tuesday (today).

All arrangements have been finalized. The match will start at 7:30 pm Pakistan Standard Time.  

A comprehensive foolproof security plan in connection with T-20 matches has been prepared by the security agencies.

All roads will remain open for the commuters except one track of Sir Shah Suleman road.

Meanwhile, a special arrangement has been made for the flood victims living in the camps in Karachi to watch T20 matches between Pakistan and England.

Flood victims can register for free passes by calling 021-99244650. At the time of registration, verification will be done with the concerned residential camp and its focal person.

It is pertinent to mention here that England pulled out of their Pakistan tour last year soon after New Zealand had abandoned their tour over security concerns.

After the T20 World Cup in Australia, England will return to play the tests in December, the PCB said in a statement, adding that the schedule of these matches would be shared later. 

New Zealand will also return to Pakistan in December for the first leg of their tour. Moreover, the PCB will also host a three-match T20 series against West Indies in January. 

Apart from five Tests, eight ODIs and 15 T20Is in the 2022-23 season, Pakistan will also stage 187 men's domestic matches in six senior competitions, 33 Pakistan Super League 2023 fixtures and 19 Pakistan Junior League 2022 games.
