The ECB have announced the schedule for Pakistan’s tour of England next year, comprising 3 Women’s International Championship ODIs and 3 T20s.
- Monday 20th June – ODI @ Leicester
- Wednesday 22nd June – ODI @ Worcester
- Monday 27th June – ODI @ Taunton
- Sunday 3rd July – T20 @ Bristol
- Tuesday 5th July – T20 @ Hampshire
- Thursday 7th July – T20 @ Chelmsford
As widely expected, there is no Test match; but the good news is that we are promised once again full, ball-by-ball Sky and BBC coverage.
Sky are under no contractual obligation to broadcast Women’s ODIs/ T20s; but CRICKETher has been told by a reliable source that they were reasonably happy with viewing figures from last summer, and this appears to confirm the broadcaster’s commitment to continuing to build an audience for the women’s game.
