When was the Last Time Pakistan Defeated England in a Test Series?
The England Cricket Team is all set to tour Pakistan for a 2 match Test Series. The series is very important, keeping the context of World Test Championship in mind. The Test Series begins in Rawalpindi on 1st December 2022 and will conclude with the final Test in Karachi which starts at 17th December 2022.
Speaking of the head to head record, Pakistan’s record against England in Test Cricket is quite decent. Both sides have played 86 Test Matches against each other. England have won 26, while Pakistan have managed to win 21. 39 Tests between these two sides have ended in a draw.
The last England played a Test Series in Pakistan was in 2005/06, and Pakistan ended up winning that series 2-0. The last Time Pakistan visited England was in 2020, and the rain-affected series was won by England with 1-0 margin.
The last time Pakistan defeated England in a Test Series was in 2015, when they defeated the Englishmen in UAE (2-0). It has been 7 years now, but Pakistan have failed to win a series against England in red-ball cricket and this will be a golden opportunity for them to end this wait.
Interestingly, in the last 5 Test Series between the two nations, Pakistan have won 2 (Both in UAE), 2 series ended in a draw (both in England) and 1 was won by England (in England).
Looking at the squad of Pakistan, it is a good mix of young and experienced blood. Same is the case with England. Plenty of new faces will be seen in the English side and it will be quite interesting to see who wins this series.
The 3 matches will be played at 3 different venues. The 1st Test will be played in Rawalpindi, 2nd at Multan and the final at Karachi.
