ISLAMABAD - Chairman PCB claims that England is open to playing cricket in Pakistan in the near future.
England is scheduled to play in Pakistan in 2022 and PCB wants to hold the series in Pakistan rather than a neutral venue.
If PCB’s efforts are successful then this will be the first time England will play an international match in Pakistan since 2005.
Talking to an international sports organization, Ehsan Mani said:
I expect England will be totally open discussing it further, but there’s a whole process they have to go through. When we play our next home series against England, they will have sufficient time to carry out their own assessment. I would never ever consider inviting someone unless it was absolutely safe for them.
Ehsan Mani is due to meet Colin Graves, the England and Wales Cricket Board chairman, in Dubai, later this month. According to reports, the meeting is set up to ‘open a dialogue about a tour, rather than a formal invitation.’
