Currently, both the teams are playing the three-match Test series, with the first two games ending in a draw. The first game ended in a tame draw with over 1200 runs scored in the match.

The second game was far more interesting with both teams having a chance going into Day 5. However, neither of them were able to win the game. With the series standing at 0-0, both teams will be looking to win the final game and the series in Lahore. The third and final game will begin on March 21. The three-match ODI series will start on March 29. The second and third games will be played on March 31 and April 2.

The all-format series between the two teams will end with a lone T20I on April 5. All the limited-overs games will be played in Rawalpindi.
