Pakistan all set to tour England this summer after positive talks: reports
Pakistan is all set to tour England this summer after the two countries’ cricketing boards have engaged in constructive talks on biosafety arrangements, according to the Telegraph.
The Pakistan Cricket Board ( PCB) and England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) will engage in further talks before a final tour decision is made.
Pakistan is scheduled to tour England in July with a squad of 25 leaders.
Upon arrival they will undergo testing and will be tested for symptoms of coronavirus during the trip. During the fixtures the authorities will also test the temperatures of the teams.
“We had a very thorough briefing and were pleased with what we were told,” said PCB Chief Executive Wasim Khan. “A lot of time and energy has gone into the plans. The attention to detail was impressive and we are satisfied that safety will be the number one priority at all times.”
He said the cricket community must be unified to make sure the game is heading in the right direction. “It is a very critical time for the game and we have been massively reassured by the plans put in place by the ECB.”
Pakistan is expected to go on tour with three Tests and the same number of T20Is. Visitors may, however, extend their Test series provided that the West Indies skip their England tour.
