England to Play One Cricket International in Karachi


The Pakistan Cricket Board says England will play only one limited overs international match in the troubled southern port city of Karachi when it tours Pakistan later this year.

The English are expected to arrive in Pakistan October 26 and will play three tests and five limited overs internationals before returning home December 22.

Karachi will host the third one-day match December 15.

Pakistan originally wanted a test match in Karachi, but England refused. English security officials were reluctant to have more than one match in the city, which has a history of religious violence.
