Pakistan and Sri Lanka to tour England in 2016

August 25, 2015 11:51 pm

Pakistan will tour England to play four Tests, five ODIs and a T20 against the host nation next summer. Pakistan’s visit will be preceded by Sri Lanka’s, who will play three Tests, five ODIs and a T20.

The two teams will also play against Ireland ahead of their One-Day International series-something that will help Cricket Ireland ensure more matches against Full Member oppositions.

Sri Lanka will arrive in England on May 4 and will play the last match of their tour on July 5. Their fixtures also include two tour matches against Essex and Leicestershire before the start of the Test series. Pakistan will arrive to the country on June 29, and will play two tour games against Somerset and Sussex prior to the first Test. The eight-day gap after the second Test at Manchester will include a two-day tour match against Worcestershire.
