Pakistan Women will tour England for a second straight summer, playing two one-day internationals and as many International T20s

The England Women's Academy will also play Pakistan ahead of the three international fixtures. The Academy will play two back-to back Twenty20 matches and one 50-over match against Pakistan on the 27th and 29th June at Loughborough University.

Head of England Women's Cricket Clare Connor said: "I'm pleased to announce the additional fixtures for England Women against Pakistan. The limited-over games are a welcome addition to the summer schedule providing an opportunity for the England team to hone their skills against lesser known opposition and provide valuable international fixtures for Pakistan.

"The NatWest Women's one-day international at Louth Cricket Club will be the first the club has hosted since major investment was made by ECB, East Lindsey District Council and The Football Foundation in the development of the ground and shared sports pavilion.

"The England Women's Academy will also play Pakistan at Loughborough University providing potential future England players with valuable experience against full international opposition. It is the aim that these matches will play a part in preparing them for a smooth transition into full international cricket when the time comes."
