At long last, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Monday affirmed a refreshed timetable of Pakistan’s matches which they will play during the progressing England visit including three Tests and the same number of T20 Internationals.
The arrangement, as indicated by the refreshed timetable, begins with the principal Test from Aug 5 at Old Trafford, Manchester.
The Pakistan crew had arrived at England on June 28. From that point forward the travelers have been experiencing practice meetings in Worcester in the wake of clearing their Covid-19 tests, both in Pakistan and England.
Be that as it may, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) couldn’t report the last agenda on the grounds that different sorts of authorization from various government divisions were important to hold the arrangement securely. All things considered, the ECB stays mindful that any adjustment in the agenda could be made if Covid-19 pandemic circumstance changes.
“The initial Test will be played at Old Trafford, Manchester from Aug 5-9, which will be trailed by consecutive Tests at the Ageas Bowl, Southampton, from Aug 13-17 and Aug 21-25,” a PCB official statement expressed on Monday.
“The activity will at that point come back to Manchester as Old Trafford will be the setting for three T20Is, which will be played on Aug 28 and 30, and Sept 1,” it further said.
