Pakistan will host the Sri Lankan side from 24th May to 5th June 2022. Sri Lanka will be eager to prove themselves on the world stage after being excluded from the women’s world cup organized in New Zealand a few months back owing to their poor ODI Team Rankings.

This will be the new and the third cycle of the ICC Women’s Championship which kick starts for both the teams at the National Stadium of Karachi. This will be the first time that the national side is given to host matches after they hosted West indies for 3 T20I’s back in December 2018. This will also be the first international series in Pakistan that will be played outside the Bio-Bubble environment since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020.

Both Pakistan and Sri Lanka will arrive at Karachi on the 19th of May and after having a practice for three days or so will build-up for the historic T20I series starting from the 24th of May

This edition provides us an opportunity to start fresh and make the most of the home advantage. I am sure the team will perform to their fullest potential and the Pakistan cricket fans, who have extended us great support, will get to see better and consistent results.”, Pakistan captain Bismah Maroof said in a press conference after the announcement of the schedule.
