Ehsan Mani suggests England should play a series in Pakistan as it is 'safe'
Chairman Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Ehsan Mani suggested on Monday that the Britain cricket team should tour and play a series in Pakistan because it was "safe".
"England should visit Pakistan and play a series," he said, adding: "No country is risk-free, but conditions are improving in Pakistan now."
Mani further said that England's series is in 2022, and Pakistan would really like for Britain to go to the country.
Cricket and COVID-19 will should co-exist'
Last month, PCB's chief executive Wasim Khan had said that sending the Pakistan cricket team on a tour to England during the coronavirus pandemic was quite tough decision, but "cricket and COVID-19 will should co-exist".
The PCB official, while talking to Geo News, said that matters became quite tense when cricket team players started testing positive for COVID-19.
"However," the official said, "for the restoration of world cricket and to stay it heading in the right direction, it’s imperative to continue with matches."
“COVID-19 and cricket will must co-exist, there was no other reason for this decision aside from the [revival of] global cricket,” he added.
