Ehsan Mani, the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has assured hosting distinct cricket teams in the realm as per schedule following players’ ill-consideration over voyaging amidst the Afghanistan political crisis.
Recently, some of the New Zealanders showed their concerns over visiting Pakistan following the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan. Consequently, uncertainties arose about New Zealand’s upcoming tour to the cricket-loving nation.
Clearing all those uncertainties, Mani revealed that Pakistan is on the track to host the Kiwis and then England sequentially. While reporting to Times of India, the chairman urged,
“Cricket is taking place (in Pakistan) and we have New Zealand coming in September followed by England in October. There are no problems in hosting matches in Pakistan”.
PCB optimist of hosting teams in Pakistan despite Afghanistan crisis
It is pertinent to mention that Kiwis will voyage men in green’s land in September to encounter them in a three-match ODI series alongside five t20Is.
Later, England’s men and women will visit Pakistan for the white-ball series in October. The subsequent white-ball series will help out either side to polish their route ahead of the T20 World Cup 2021.
