England return to Pakistan for their first Test tour of the country since 2005 – and you can watch every match on Sky Sports.
Ben Stokes’ side will look to continue their run of seven wins out of seven this summer at home when they face Pakistan in Rawalpindi (from December 1), Multan (from December 9) and Karachi (from December 17).
Each day of each Test will start at 5am in the UK and kick off from 4.30am on Sky Sports Cricket.
England can reward three players for the tournament with 18-year-old all-rounder Rehan Ahmed a late addition to the squad and Liam Livingstone and Will Jacks absent at Test level.
Ahmed will become the youngest man to play Test cricket for England, surpassing Brian Close, who was 18 years and 149 days when he played against New Zealand in July 1949.
Ben Duckett and Keaton Jennings are in contention to open the batting with Zak Crawley after Alex Lees has been dismissed.
The ever-green James Anderson is one of the top bowlers but not his long-time new ball partner Stuart Broad, who is missing from the series as he awaits the birth of his first child.
Pakistan have named four uncapped players in their squad – leg-spinners Abrar Ahmed and Zahid Mahmood and fast bowlers Mohammad Ali and Mohammad Wasim.
