While Pakistan Cricket Board has given choice to players for the tour of England amid Coronavirus pandemic, there are reports that all players are ready for the tour.

PCB had earlier briefed its cricketers on health and safety measures that England will put in place during the tour.

The series, as per reports in Pakistan media will be played between August 5 and September 1 with Manchester and Southampton being host cities.

“According to the initial draft, the first Test is being scheduled to be played in Manchester from August 5. The next two tests will be played in Southampton from August 13 and 21 respectively,” the report quoting source said.

“The three T20Is are being planned to be held in Manchester on August 28, 30 and September 1.”

Meanwhile, PCB CEO Wasim Khan stated that Pakistan was looking forward to touring England this summer.

He further sad that PCB is not looking to bargain for this tour for a reciprocal series in Pakistan by England.

“The players are chomping at the bit. We’re very much looking forward to touring.” Wasim Khan said in an interview with Sky Sports News.

“We need a 14-day quarantine period when we get to England and enough time to practice for the guys so they can be ready.”
