Pakistan cricket team received special approval from the British government

Pakistan cricket team has received approval from the British government to travel to the country despite a travel ban enlisted by the government. Pakistan is one of the few countries on the UK’s red list due to the Covid-19 crisis. ------------------------------

The team will be allowed to travel to the country and will be expected to adhere to the Covid-19 protocols put in place by the British government.

The Men in Green will most likely travel to England in late June via a chartered flight due to the travel restrictions. The touring party will be required to spend a set number of days in quarantine upon their arrival to the country.

Pakistan will face England in a three-match ODI series and a three-match T20I series, scheduled to begin from 8 July. Here’s the full schedule of the tour: ------------------------------

------------------------------ *Date* *Match* *Venue* 8 July 1st ODI Sophia Gardens, Cardiff 10 July 2nd ODI Lord’s Cricket Ground, London 13 July 3rd ODI Edgbaston Stadium, Edgbaston 16 July 1st T2oI Trent Bridge, Nottingham 18 July 2nd T20I Headingley Cricket Ground, Leeds 20 July 3rd T20I Old Trafford Cricket Ground, Manchester

Elsewhere, Indian cricket team has also been granted special permission by the British government to travel to the country for their World Test Championship final against New Zealand, scheduled to be played on 18 June at Ageas Bowl, Southampton. India has been placed on UK’s red list for the same reason.
