No conditions made for England tour: PCB
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) CEO Wasim Khan has clarified that there is no specific conditions or deal made for Pakistan to visit England this summer.
Earlier, it reveals that Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is going to impose some conditions on their tour of England in August this year amid the coronavirus pandemic. PCB wants England to travel in Pakistan next year, at least for some matches.
However, Wasim eliminated the speculation and made it clear that there’s no intention of PCB to force England for return tour in Pakistan in 2022.
“There is a lot of cricket to be played between now and 2022,” Wasim disclosed to Sky Sports’ The Cricket Show. “I’ve had that question raised a couple of times; has there been a deal cut? Is something going to occur?
“But the simple fact is – and it’s a genuine answer – we have to get cricket back on again and now is presumably not an opportunity to attempt to use anything. Normally things will take their course throughout the following two years.
“We’ve got a lot of home series between now and then, which ideally will all go effectively, and we’ll give more certainty to any semblance of Australia and England, who are because of visit in 2022.
“In any case, this is tied in with getting cricket back on once more. The cricketers need to play and I believe it’s significant for the worldwide game also that we begin to carry a degree of regularity to playing cricket again – whatever that may resemble – throughout the following six to 12 months.”
Pakistan are scheduled to travel England for three-match Test series, starting from August 5, which is the part of ICC World Test Championship.
