LAHORE: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chief Executive Wasim Khan has expressed surety that the national team will benefit a lot from the England tour in the future.
“I have been asked several times, that will there be any benefit for us in the future, I am sure there will be. It has gone down well with England,” Wasim said.
According to Wasim, the team did not make a deal with England and this was not the right time to do that. “There will be discussions with the ECB in the future, of course, they will make a better decision,” he added.
Wasim stressed again on the importance of solidarity for the game among boards which is affected by COVID-19 financially just like other sports.

“We are making decisions not only for Pakistan but also for world cricket. Starting the game again is also financially important,” he maintained.
Pakistan and England will play three Tests against England in a bio-secure environment. England Cricket Board (ECB) has recently announced players’ names for the first match of the three-test series against Pakistan scheduled to play on 5th August in Manchester.
The test series against Pakistan will also be held behind closed doors in a bio-secure bubble, even though a limited number of fans will be allowed to attend county cricket matches with social distancing guidelines in place.
