KARACHI (92 News) – The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has invited British cricket team to visit Pakistan for playing three T20Is in early January.

According to the PCB spokesperson, the board will play its positive role to revive cricket in Pakistan. PCB CEO Wasim Khan told that he has written a formal letter to Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and invited England’s team to tour Pakistan for three T20I matches in January.

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

“It will be very important series for us to improve our image as a host and we’ll do our best to make it happen,” he said. The PCB CEO also added that the crisis in Cricket South Africa will not trouble the team’s tour to Pakistan and series will go ahead as scheduled.

On the other hand, the England board confirmed that it has received an invitation from Pakistan and will consider various aspects before reaching a final decision.

“After discussions with the Pakistan Cricket Board, we can confirm the England and Wales Cricket Board has received an invitation in respect of a short white-ball tour to Pakistan during the early part of 2021,” said the ECB.
