England’s Prime Minister David Cameron has welcomed Pakistan men and women’s team for their tour to England. Pakistan’s men team will face England in four Tests, five ODIs and a T20I. The women’s team will play each other in three ODIs and three T20Is. In an Instagram post, Cameron also said about improvement in the ties and links between the two nations, as well as hoping England can tour Pakistan in near future. The last time these two teams met was in October 2015 at Abu Dhabi. In that tour, Pakistan won the Test series 2-0, but faltered in the ODIs and T20Is.

Pakistan have gone through plethora of changes in recent times. Waqar Younis resigned from his post as the head coach and Shahid Afridi stepped down from captaincy. Former South African and Australian coach Mickey Arthur was appointed by PCB as the head coach. Misbah-ul-Haq will be leading Pakistan’s Test side, with Azhar Ali leading the ODI team and Sarfraz Ahmed skipper of the T20I squad.

The Test series will be the first for Mohammad Aamer since his five-year ban. Aamer was banned by ICC for match-fixing during his side’s match against England at Lord’s. He made his return to the limited overs side earlier this year.

England are currently playing host to Sri Lanka. They won the three match Test series 2-0, and are scheduled to play five ODIs and a T20I. Under Alastair Cook’s captaincy, the hosts won the first two Tests comfortably, before the third Test was drawn after rain on Day Four and Five.
