Watch Pakistan v England on Sky Sports: Catch every ball as Ben Stokes’ side play three Tests in December | Cricket News


England return to Pakistan for their first test tour of the country since 2005 – and you can watch every ball live on Sky Sports.

Ben Stokes’ side will look to continue a resurgence that has yielded six wins from seven in the summer at home to Pakistan in Rawalpindi (from December 1), Multan (from December 9) and Karachi ( from December 17).

Each day of each Test will start at 5am UK time, with a ramp-up from 4.30am on Sky Sports Cricket.

Thursday, December 1, 4:30 a.m.


England could award up to three starts during the series with 18-year-old Rehan Ahmed a late addition to the squad and Liam Livingstone and Will Jacks also uncapped at Test level.

Ahmed would become the youngest man to play Test cricket for England, overtaking Brian Close, who was 18 years and 149 days old when he played against New Zealand in July 1949.

Ben Duckett and Keaton Jennings are in contention to open batting with Zak Crawley after Alex Lees dropped out.

The perennial James Anderson is among the couture bowlers, but not his longtime partner Stuart Broad, who misses the series as he awaits the birth of his first child.

Pakistan have named four unselected players to their squad – leg players Abrar Ahmed and Zahid Mahmood as well as fast bowlers Mohammad Ali and Mohammad Wasim.
