The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has confirmed the schedule for England's tour of the United Arab Emirates to take on Pakistan in January and February.
The tour begins with three Tests - two in Dubai and one in Abu Dhabi - between 17th January and 7th February before four One-Day Internationals and three Twenty20 Internationals in Abu Dhabi and Dubai from 13th to 27th February.
England will also play two three-day tour matches ahead of the Test series and a one-day tour game on 10th February.
The squad will arrive in Dubai on 3rd January, four days before the first tour match begins.
