The English cricket team toured the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to play Pakistan in October and November 2015.[1] The Pakistan cricket team played their 'home' fixtures in the UAE due to ongoing security concerns in Pakistan since the 2009 attack on the Sri Lanka national cricket team.

The tour consisted of three Test matches, four One Day Internationals and three Twenty20 Internationals.[2] They also played two two-day tour matches against a Pakistan A side, a 50-over match against Hong Kong, and a Twenty20 match against the United Arab Emirates.[3] Pakistan played a 50-over match against Nepal and a 20-over match against Hong Kong.
