The Pakistan Cricket Board has unveiled a bumper international calendar featuring exciting ICC Women's Championship and World Test Championship series at home.

The bumper home season will begin with Pakistan Women playing three T20Is and as many ICC Women's Championship ODIs against Sri Lanka Women in Karachi.

The women's team will then travel to Ireland for a T20I tri-series and the Birmingham Commonwealth Games in July-August. Later in the year, they are scheduled to play the Women's T20 Asia Cup (Host nation TBC), and a three-match ODI and T20I series at home versus Ireland.

Pakistan Men are slated to play seven ICC World Test Championship matches in the 2022-23 cycle – two away Tests against Sri Lanka, three against England followed by two versus New Zealand at home. They will also be playing 12 ICC Men's Cricket World Cup Super League matches against West Indies, Sri Lanka, Netherlands and New Zealand.

The men's team will kick off their home summer with an ODI series against West Indies in Rawalpindi in June before travelling to Sri Lanka for two Tests and three ODIs. Later, they will be taking part in T20 Asia Cup in August-September and the ICC Men's T20 World Cup in Australia, starting 15 October with the Final slated for 15 November.

After New Zealand and England cancelled their respective international series in Pakistan last year, both teams are set to return to Pakistan between September 2022 and January 2023. England will travel to Pakistan for a seven-match T20I series in September-October followed by the WTC series in November-December. While New Zealand will first play two WTC matches followed by three CWCSL ODIs in December-January. 

In 2023, the West Indies men's side will again tour Pakistan for three T20Is while New Zealand will play five ODIs and as many T20Is in April-May. While the women's team will travel to Australia for three ODIs and three T20Is.

Two big ICC events are lined-up for the junior and the senior women's teams – the U19 Women's T20 World Cup and Women's T20 World Cup – in South Africa early in 2023.
