Australia are set to end their 24-year absence from Pakistan after dates were announced for a month-long tour next March that features three Tests, three ODIs and a solitary T20I. The Tests will take place in Karachi (March 3-7), Rawalpindi (March 12-16) and Lahore (March 21-25), while Lahore will be the venue for the four white-ball affairs to be played from March 29 to April 5.

The Test series will be counted towards the ICC World Test Championship, while the ODIs will be connected to the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League – a 13-team event from which the seven highest-placed sides and the hosts, India, will qualify directly for the event proper in 2023.
