PCB to Consider Summer Tour in England

Pakistan Cricket Board will consider the resumption of their tour in England if their safety conditions are met. 

On May 15, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) will hold a meeting to further discuss the fate of Pakistan’s tour of England. The board meeting to be held in a conference call will cover discussions concerning ECB’s plans about cricket resumption, tour logistics, medical safety, and the like. 

England has badly been affected by the outbreak of COVID-19 and cricket has badly been affected because of it. Still, PCB chief executive Wasim Khan remains positive about the possibility of the tour’s resumption. He said, ‘It's a tough situation for everyone right now, and I don't think it's fair to take advantage of the situation. The most important thing for us is to revive the game for all countries. If we don't, we will be facing a lot of problems going forward’.

He also stated that the health and safety of their players are very important and that they will not compromise on it. They are trying to learn more about England’s current situation and it will be assessed later on. As PCB remains to be unsure about the situation, a final decision about the tour may be expected in the next three to four weeks. 

Pakistan’s tour of England was supposed to be comprised of three Tests and three T20Is. To learn more about these cricket formats, head over to Betwala.
