Men in Green ended their 2022 cricketing calendar with ups and downs. Even though they managed to reach the Finals of the Asia Cup and the T20 World Cup, the last moments of hurdles stopped them from recreating history.

Notably, the Baber-led Pakistan failed to escape their performance complexes even in the last weeks of 2022, as evidenced by their comprehensive defeat against England in the three-match Test series on home soil.

However, with new hopes and determination, Green Caps are entering the 2023 Calendar year, where a few other giant challenges await them, including one remaining test of the two against New Zealand, while the first has already been played in the very last week of 2022.

Pakistan will compete in six test matches in 2023, one of which is now in progress against New Zealand in Karachi. The other five test matches will be part of the Home-Away series that will be played against Sri Lanka and Australia.

According to the Pakistan’s Official Playing Schedule, Men in Green will engage in the PSL season Eight right after concluding their series against New Zealand, while PSL will remain in the field between Feb-Mar.

In addition to six tests in 2023, Five T20Is and 8 ODIs are also scheduled in Pakistan’s 2023 cycle against New Zealand and Afghanistan, respectively. However, their most critical activity of the year is participation in the Asia Cup and the 2023 World Cup.

The split of the Green Caps’ cricket schedule includes a five-match ODI and T20I series against New Zealand in April or May, followed by a two-match test series in Sri Lanka and a three-match ODI trip to Afghanistan.

In September, Pakistan will host the 2023 Asia Cup in which India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, and one qualifier team will participate. However, BCCI hasn’t agreed to send their team to Pakistan for this event.

During October/November 2023, India will stage cricket’s biggest event ICC ODI World Cup, in which Pakistan is among the sixteen other conductors. Off the back of the World Cup, Shaheen will travel to Australia for three-match test series.
