Pakistan to tour England in 2018

England will face Pakistan, Australia and India next summer after the 2018 schedule was confirmed by ECB.


England will start the summer with two Tests against Pakistan, against whom they drew 2-2 last year, before leading into a period of white-ball cricket which begins with a trip to Edinburgh to face Scotland.


Eoin Morgan's side will then play five ODIs and a T20 against Australia before continuing the limited overs theme when India arrive.


The teams will play a three-match T20 series followed by a three-match ODI series.


The international summer concludes with a five-match Test series that begins at Edgbaston on Wednesday 1 August.


“A five-Test series against India is at the heart of next summer’s international programme," said ECB Chief Executive Officer Tom Harrison. “This is always a much-anticipated contest which attracts a huge following across the globe for the five-day game.


“Test match cricket has a strong, consistent and passionate following across England and Wales and the seven summer Tests, starting with the Pakistan matches, are sure to attract good crowds.


“Alongside these, England’s white-ball contests against India, Australia and Scotland will give a fascinating guide to form ahead of the ICC Cricket World Cup, to be staged here in 2019.


“We are pleased to have a very loyal following for all three formats of the game and we expect to attract great crowds across the summer. The universal on-sale date was a great success for the venues and fans last year and we will repeat that again this year. What also stays the same is that we would urge fans to apply early and plan for a big summer of cricket."
