Chairman Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Ehsan Mani on Monday invited the England cricket team to visit Pakistan and play a series as it was ‘safe’ in the country to do so.

“England should visit Pakistan and play a series,” he said, adding: “No country is risk-free, but conditions are improving in Pakistan now.”

England’s series is in 2022, we would like for Britain to visit Pakistan, Mani added.

‘Cricket and COVID-19 will have to 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 a tough decision, but “cricket and COVID-19 will have to co-exist”.

The PCB official, while speaking to Geo News, said that the situation 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 keep it on track, it is imperative to continue with matches.”

“COVID-19 and cricket will have to co-exist, there was no other reason for this decision other than the [revival of] global cricket,” he added.
