England invited to Pakistan for 'short white-ball series' in 2021

England invited to Pakistan for 'short white-ball series' in 2021”

"We are very confident they will come and if that happens it will be great for Pakistan cricket as it will open the doors for other top teams like Australia and New Zealand to also come to Pakistan", he added. The Pakistan series would be in addition to existing arrangements.

The trip would be a thank you from English cricket after the Pakistanis came to the United Kingdom this summer in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic.

They could then be in Sri Lanka in January for a tour that was originally halted in March because of the virus outbreak before travelling to India for a Test series that may, like this year's Indian Premier League, be moved to the UAE on virus-related health grounds. There Are A Number Of Factors To Be Taken Into Account: ECB " As such, there are a number of factors that need to be taken into consideration, including the proposed protocols in relation to COVID-19 bio-secure bubbles, the proposed levels of security around the team, as well as the feasibility of undertaking this tour against the backdrop of an already busy schedule of global cricket for the England men's team", the statement added.

England have been invited to play a limited-overs series in Pakistan early next year, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) said.

Worldwide cricket first returned to Pakistan in 2015 with limited-overs matches against Zimbabwe.

It would act as a thank you from England to Pakistan, who fulfilled their Test and T20 tour this summer despite the Covid-19 pandemic. They would not host worldwide cricket again for six years.

But Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe, West Indies and Bangladesh have all since made the trip.

Australian coach Justin Langer spoke recently about his dislike of the idea of simultaneous tours, after it emerged that Australia's Test side could be visiting South Africa early next year as the same time as their T20 team tours New Zealand. The biggest challenge in such a situation would be following the COVID-19 protocols.

Not since 2005 have England toured Pakistan, but both governing bodies have expressed their desire for matches to take place in the immediate future.
