How to watch England’s T20 tour of Pakistan

England are touring Pakistan again for the first time in 17 years as the two countries face off in a seven-match T20I series in preparation for the T20 World Cup in Australia, which begins in October.

Moeen Ali will be England’s captain for the first few games while Jos Buttler continues to recover from a calf injury and he said: “Playing in front of the Pakistani crowd will be memorable and it’s also a great honor to represent Jos and captain England.”

England are also calling back opening batter Alex Hales, who is playing international cricket for the first time since being dropped ahead of the 2019 World Cup for failing two drug tests and losing the confidence of then-captain Eoin Morgan.

Pakistan will be without left arm Shaheen Shah Afridi, who is recovering from a knee injury but has called up two uncapped players – 23-year-old legspinner Abrar Ahmed and mid-paced all-rounder Aamir Jamal – to Babar Azam’s squad.
