Pakistan is all set to arrive on Sunday without 10 coronavirus-infected players for a cricket tour of England that doesn’t have any scheduled games yet.
The tour was originally supposed to begin from July 30th but due to the unexpected coronavirus, it was delayed. England’s three-test series is also delayed until July 28th.
The staff and 10 players who tested positive for the virus will be in isolation and then only will be able to join. The rest of the team will undergo the test before Saturday, will upon arrival in England go into isolation for 14days in Worcester before transferring to Derbyshire’s Incora Country Ground on July 13.
The Pakistan Cricket Board showed concern on Friday over the positive results from 10 of the 29 cricketers chosen for the tour. But the positive news was that none have shown symptoms, and have enough time to recover.
Through video conference, the board approved a 2020-21 budget of 7.76 billion rupees, including for the Pakistan Super League, its premier tournament. The PCB decided to suspend the PSL in MARCH but hopes to stage the playoffs this year.
