Pakistan agrees to tour England in July but players won’t be forced to go


PCB said 25 players will travel to England on four chartered flights in the first week of July and that the series will be played behind closed doors after the players have completed their quarantines.

PCB chief executive Wasim Khan told a news channel, “We had a very detailed and comprehensive discussion with the ECB on Friday regarding the tour and PCB has now agreed in principle to send our cricket team to England in July,”.

During the discussions with the English board held via video link on Friday, it was agreed that Pakistan would play the Test and T20I matches behind closed doors at grounds which have hotels inside the ground. But players won”t be made to go against their wishes.

“Bio-secure arrangements will be made by the host country and medical staff will remain with our team throughout the tour. We will test all our players and regular temperature checks will be ensured. It”s very important that cricket is revived during these challenging times,” Khan added.
