England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) is likely to send a “B” team for the proposed England’s tour to Pakistan that most probably will take place in January next year and so, here is a look at the story.
Ehsan Mani Confirms The Development
As per the report of Daily Jang, Chairman, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Ehsan Mani has confirmed that ECB is likely to send a “B” team for the proposed tour.
So, When Exactly Is England’s Tour To Pakistan Likely To Take Place
The proposed tour that consists of three T20 international matches is likely to take place between January 15 and January 20.
Should PCB Be Happy Welcoming A “B” Team From England
PCB would be very glad welcoming even a B-team from England owing to multiple reasons. For a start England hasn’t toured Pakistan in more or less 15 years now. Also, the ODI world champions have a busy schedule ahead of them. Hence, waiting for their full-strength side to visit the country might take a pretty long period of time – something that doesn’t suit PCB.
The board then should be very happy accommodating an ice breaking short tour that is likely to make way for a proper one next year. Moreover, if England come to Pakistan, this should also make way for other sides like Australia and New Zealand to do the same in coming months and years.
