The England women's cricket team will be touring Pakistan for the first time in history later this year to play a limited-overs series, the boards of both the countries confirmed on Thursday.

Pakistan will host England for a series of 3 one-day internationals and 2 T20Is in October with all the games in Karachi.

The 2 T20 games will be played in Karachi on October 14 and 15 as double-headers alongside the men’s team, who are set to visit Pakistan for the first time in 16 years.

Heather Knight’s side will then remain in Karachi to compete in three ODIs on Oct. 18, 20 and 22.

“The England Women’s cricket team has never toured Pakistan before so this is another important step in our history and journey,” said Clare Connor, the England and Wales Cricket Board Managing Director of Women’s Cricket.

“Not only will this be a cricket tour that provides valuable competitive opportunity to both teams, it should also serve as another powerful and positive message as we drive forward our equality ambitions for more women and girls to derive empowerment through the sport.”

Pakistan and England last met in the Women’s T20 World Cup in Australia last year, with England winning by 42 runs.

“I am confident the women’s tour will open up opportunities for future tours that will further contribute in promoting women’s cricket in Pakistan,” said Pakistan Cricket Board Chief Executive Wasim Khan.
