Pakistan will play four shortened home series against India within the next eight years, according to the Future Tours Programme (FTP) draft.

Pakistan’s home series against India are likely to only feature two Test matches and the series scheduled for July 2020 will only consist of five ODIs.

Pakistan will also travel to India on two occasions for three Test matches, which will come in November 2017 and November 2021.

One team Pakistan will not play often is South Africa, despite the both country’s cricket boards signing an agreement to play more series over the coming years.

South Africa will host Pakistan once in December 2018 for three Tests, five ODIs and three Twenty20 Internationals.

The next meeting between the two nations will be a limited over series in Pakistan in October 2022.

However, Pakistan will face Australia up to seven times over the next eight years.

Five of those series will be played in Pakistan, while Australia will host the subcontinent nation in December 2016 and 2019 for six Tests and six ODIs.

Despite a huge amount of Test series over the next eight years, Pakistan will only play three four-Test series. Two of those series will come against England in 2016 and 2020 and one will be against the West Indies in 2017.

Pakistan will not host Bangladesh or Zimbabwe at any point over the next eight years.
