Pakistan Women set off for Malaysia on Saturday to take part in the upcoming England series. The series starts on December 9 and will see the national women teams of England and Pakistan fight it out for 6 limited-overs matches.

Pakistan was scheduled to host England at home but the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had to shift the bilateral series to Malaysia after England declined to travel Pakistan. All the 6 matches will be played at Kinrara Oval in Malaysia.

Pakistan is currently ranked 5th in the championship points table while England is placed at the 2nd position. If Pakistan win the ODI series, they can qualify for the Women’s World Cup in 2021 directly.

The top 4 teams out of the 8 qualify to the ICC Women’s World Cup directly after they play against each other in the championship cycle.
