Pakistan women’s cricket team arrives in London for white-ball series

The Pakistan women’s cricket team has landed at Heathrow Airport in London after traveling via Dubai. It marks the start of their white-ball series against England.

Departing from Karachi earlier in the day, the team is gearing up for a series that includes three T20Is and three ODIs.

Dr. Muhammad Faisal, the High Commissioner of Pakistan in England, was on hand to greet and welcome the team and management upon their arrival.

The squad is set to head to Leicester shortly for a warm-up match against ECB Development XI on 9 May. It will lead up to the series opener, the first T20I scheduled for 11 May in Birmingham.

It’s worth noting that the ODIs in this series contribute to the ICC Women’s Championship 2022-25. It marks Pakistan’s eighth and final series in the current event cycle.

Currently occupying the fifth position with 16 points in the ICC Women’s Championship 2022-25 standings, Pakistan’s performance in this series is pivotal, as the top five teams, alongside hosts India, will directly qualify for the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup 2025.
