Latest: PCB decides against holding camp ahead of England tour

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided against holding a camp for the national players ahead of the tour of England. The board has also asked the players to not train outdoors as the country looks to fight the coronavirus pandemic.

The PCB release said: “Taking into account the Covid-19 outlook in Pakistan in the coming weeks, the operational and logistical matters as well the observation that keeping players in a safe and secure environment would remain a challenge, the Pakistan Cricket Board has decided not to hold a training camp of the national men’s team prior to their departure for England.

“The PCB is already in discussions with the ECB to bring forward their early July departure date for England so the Pakistan squad can benefit from the additional practice time there.

“More details around the pre-tour Covid-19 testing of the players and player support personnel, assembling them in Lahore and their training/match schedule will be shared in due course.” the release stated.
