Both Pakistan and England are ready for the start of their three-match Test series after it has been confirmed and set to happen on August 5.
The Pakistan squad has already arrived in England last June 28 and has continued with their 14-day self-isolation. By July, 13, the team will move from Worcester to Derbyshire so that they can proceed with their training after their match against England was already given a confirmed schedule.
The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has already confirmed that the schedule of their series against Pakistan will be on August 5. This is just right after their scheduled tour against Ireland which will start on July 30 and end on August 4. As the ECB continuously fix their scheduled matches, they are still communicating with Cricket Australia to reschedule their match with them.
As per ECB chief executive officer Tom Harrison, ‘Confirmation of these matches against Ireland and Pakistan is another important step for our game as we begin to safely stage international cricket again, but also to minimise the impact the Covid-19 pandemic has had and will continue to have, on cricket at all levels’.
‘We owe a significant debt of gratitude to the players, staff and administrators of the Cricket West Indies, Cricket Ireland, and the Pakistan Cricket Board for their willingness and co-operation to get international cricket back up and running and allow these matches to be staged’, he added.
The first cricket event to take place after the long lockdown will be England’s match series against the West Indies which will take place on July 8. Head over to Betwala to check out the odds and make sure to check the latest promos brought by our partner, Bitcasino!
