Pakistan to play at least 133 matches across all formats in 2023-27 FTP cycle

Pakistan matches

Pakistan is expected to compete in at least 133 matches, comprising 29 Tests, 49 ODIs, and 55 T20Is in the next two cycles of ICC’s Future Tour Programs. These matches do not include ICC and ACC competitions. A total of 27 bilateral series, including 12 at home and 15 away, will feature Pakistan. 

As anticipated, no series between India and Pakistan has been scheduled for the following five years due to tense government ties. 

On July 25 and 26, the ICC Annual Meeting will take place in Birmingham, England, to evaluate the FTP and discuss other important matters pertaining to the game. 

“Future Tours Programme (FTP) finalization is crucial for us. We will know for sure which teams will come to visit us and which countries we will travel as a result of this. The remaining 20% of the FTP will be finished in the upcoming meeting, according to a press release issued by PCB Chief Executive Faisal Hasnain on Saturday. “80% of the FTP has already been agreed upon,” Hasnain said. 

The overall number of matches and dates still have opportunity for change, according to the report.
