The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided to use just two or three main venues for the seven-match global T20 series against England, scheduled just ahead of the World Cup in Australia. According to one report, the PCB was originally set to host the games in additional venues, along with smaller global ones like Faisalabad, but Multan has dropped the plan.
He confirmed that a preliminary draft of venues and dates had been sent to the England Cricket Board and that the PCB was expecting a visit from the ECB delegation sometime in July/August.
The tentative dates are between September 15th and October 2nd.
“Karachi and Lahore are the two main locations of the series and Rawalpindi was also added as a backup. But with England coming to Pakistan after 17 long years, the conclusion is that even in Karachi and Lahore there will be big crowds for the games.” Apparently, the PCB are also looking to continue the three-game friendly series against England after the T20 Host World Cup in November at smaller venues like Multan and Faisalabad.
"The smaller venues for the test matches will be prepared during the time available," the offer says.
