The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) is all set to send a five-member security team to Pakistan on July 17 ahead of the England tour of Pakistan 2022. The ECB security team will be visiting the country to inspect arrangements and potential venues.

England National Cricket Team was set to visit Pakistan for a five-match T20I series, ahead of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021. However, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) cancelled the tour, citing the cricketers’ mental well-being issues.

Notably, the England and Wales Cricket Board decided to call off the tour days after the New Zealand National Cricket Team abruptly abandoned their tour of Pakistan citing a security alert from the government, just before the commencement of the first ODI in Rawalpindi.

Now, the England National Cricket Team are scheduled to tour Pakistan for the first time since 2015 when they play a 7-match T20I series and a 3-match Test series in September or October.
