Lahore:The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has suggested in their tentative itinerary to the Wales and English Cricket Board (ECB) that the Test matches be held in Karachi, Faisalabad and Lahore during their tour of Pakistan later this year.

According to PCB sources, the England team will tour from October 25 to December 22as per the tentative itinerary.

It is learnt that the ECB has put in a request to the Pakistan board for scheduling at least two three-day games before the start of the Test series and also a one-day practice game before the five One-day Internationals.

It's worth recalling that this is England's first tour of Pakistan since the 2000 rubber when Nasser Hussain's team pocketed the maiden Test series 1-0 in Pakistan after winning the Karachi Test.
