Prime Minister Imran Khan gives green signal to Pakistan Cricket team’s England tour

Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan, on Monday gave clearance to the team’s tour of England which is slated to start towards the end of this month.

The green signal came when Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ehsan Mani met Khan in Islamabad to update him on cricket matters.

“The prime minister told Mani that the Pakistan team should go to England for the Test and T20 series as people want to see cricket and other sports activities to resume despite the coronavirus pandemic,” a PCB source told Press Trust of India.

According to the source, Imran Khan also told Mani to ensure that proper protocols are adopted by the England Cricket Board as well to ensure the safety of the touring players and support staff.

Pakistan are supposed to reach England by the end of this month to lock horns in a three-match Test and T20I series slated to be played through August and September.

The group of 29 players and 14 support staff will be kept in 14-day quarantine after reaching England and then another three-four weeks in a bio-secure environment.

The source also told PTI that Imran Khan had been briefed about the recent developments in Pakistan cricket and he has asked Mani to ensure that no employee has to lose his job in the midst of the ongoing pandemic.

“Imran made it clear to Mani not to end the services of anyone until the pandemic is going on due to the dire economic forecast and problems facing the people.”
