English cricket team in Ceylon and Pakistan in 1968–69
The England national cricket team, under the auspices of Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), toured Ceylon and Pakistan from January to March 1969 and played a three-match Test series against the Pakistani national cricket team. The Test series was drawn 0–0. England were captained by Colin Cowdrey and Pakistan by Saeed Ahmed. As Ceylon had not then achieved Test status, the international played at the Paikiasothy Saravanamuttu Stadium, Colombo, is classified as a first-class match. It ended in a draw.
