England in talks about first Pakistan tour since 2005


London: England may return to Pakistan this winter, and negotiations between the British Cricket Committee (ECB) and the Pakistan Cricket Committee (PCB) will proceed smoothly in the short T20 series in January 2021.

In the proposed plan, the test team will travel to Sri Lanka and Pakistan at the same time.

Pakistan is one of the four major sectors sending teams to the UK this year. This feat helped the England and Wales Cricket Committee keep its losses at around 100 million pounds, instead of the 3.8 expected end of the world in the event of a complete demise of the season. Billion pounds.

The three-match “20th Century 20” series that may be played in mid-January is now being discussed, which will help repay the solidarity of the Pakistan Cricket Committee in times of crisis.

An ECB statement read: “As with any proposed tour that takes place at this time, the safety and welfare of our players and staff is paramount.

“As such, there are a number of factors that need to be taken into consideration, including the proposed protocols in relation to COVID-19 bio-secure bubbles, the proposed levels of security around the team, as well as the feasibility of undertaking this tour against the backdrop of an already busy schedule of international cricket for the England men’s team.

“We will be liaising with the PCB, and as well as other partners over the coming weeks to work through these considerations before a final decision will be taken in due course.”

On the other hand, PCB CEO Wasim Khan said in an interview with a private news channel: “Earlier this week we sent a letter to the England and Wales Cricket Committee (CB) inviting them to visit Pakistan in England, we received Positive sign. January.”

Khan also confirmed that the safety inspection team of the South African cricket team will visit Pakistan in November to ensure that their team’s arrangements for the tour to Pakistan next year are in place.

“We have taken another step towards bringing cricket to Pakistan and have formally invited England for a series of three T20s in Pakistan. I am in contact with my England counterpart for last few days and they’re considering our invitation,” he said.

“It will be very important series for us to improve our image as a host and we’ll do our best to make it happen,” he said.

However, Wasim insists that this is not commensurate with Pakistan’s summer tour to the UK during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The CEO of PCB said that the South African cricket crisis will not cause trouble for the team’s trip to Pakistan and the series will proceed as scheduled.
