PCB has invited England for the Pakistan tour in January for three T20Is, as was confirmed by the officials on Thursday.

As per the shared details, the PCB CEO Wasim Khan said that he has received positive signals from the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) after he sent a letter to them earlier this week inviting England’s team to tour Pakistan in January.

As per the sources, the series will likely be played between January 13-20 of next year.

Khan also confirmed that a security inspection team of Cricket South Africa will visit Pakistan in November to see the arrangements being put in place for their team’s next year’s scheduled tour to Pakistan.

“We have taken another step towards bringing cricket to Pakistan and have officially invited England for a series of three T20Is in Pakistan. I am in contact with my England counterpart for the last few days and they’re considering our invitation,” he said.

“It will be a very crucial series for us to improve our image as a host and we’ll do our best to make it happen,” he said.

However, Wasim insisted that this is not reciprocal to Pakistan’s summer tour to England in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic.

The PCB CEO mentioned that the crisis in Cricket South Africa will not trouble the team’s tour to Pakistan and the series will go ahead as scheduled.

In the meantime, the ECB has said that it is committed to doing what it can to help international cricket returning to Pakistan.
