Pakistan cricket team will embark for England to play three ODIs and three T20Is once the Pakistan Super League 2021 is done and dusted before July.

The Pakistan Cricket Board has lined up tours of England and West Indies just before the ICC T20 World Cup later in the year.

The white-ball series have been given preference in the tours from the three countries to prepare for the mega event in October.

Where can I watch live stream of Pakistan vs England?

Cricket fanatics can log on to PTV SportsHotstar and SonyLIV to catch live action in July. It is to be noted that a subscription is necessary for both India-based services mentioned above.

SonyLIV offers free service as well, but with a five-minute delay. So if you are okay with catching the action a little time after it actually occurs, you can enjoy Pakistan’s tour of England in high quality on the SonyLIV application.
