Citing personal reasons Pakistan star pacer Mohammad Amir and middle-order batsman Haris Sohail have pulled out of Pakistan’s tour of England.

Pakistan Cricket Board on Thursday confirmed the developments.

“Amir has withdrawn so that he can be at the birth of his second child in August, while Haris will miss the tour because of family reasons,” said the PCB in a statement.

“Pakistan will send 28 players and 14 player support personnel for three Tests and three T20Is to be played in August and September. The squad as well as pre-series and series schedule will be announced in due course,” it added.

Earlier PCB cancelled a players’ training camp at the National Cricket Academy due to the rising cases of COVID-19 in the Pakistan.

Instead, the PCB asked its English counterpart ECB to prepare an itinerary which allows the Pakistan team to reach London early in June. The squad was originally scheduled to land in the UK on July 6.

Pakistan are scheduled to play three Tests and three ODIs against England in August and will be required to complete the quarantine period.
