The Pakistan Cricket Team will travel to Bangladesh after five years following the conclusion of the 2021 T20 World Cup. They will play two Test matches and three T20I matches on the tour. The Test matches are part of the World Test Championship.
Pakistan’s last tour of Bangladesh was at the 2016 Asia Cup, where they finished 4th and did not qualified for the final. For a bilateral series, Pakistan played a full series in 2015. Their white-ball team failed to win a single match while the red-ball team won the Test series 1-0.
Dhaka and Chattogram will be the two venues that the matches will be played. Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka will host four of the five matches of the tour. The whole T20I series, along with the second Test match, will be held in Dhaka. Chattogram’s Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury will host the first Test match.
