According to a report by the PTI, Pakistan’s tour to England could be extended, as PCB and ECB considering adding an extra Test in the series slated to begin in July.

The Pakistan Cricket Board has due to have a video conference with England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) on June 18 to discuss about the upcoming endeavour.

The primary agenda of this virtual meeting will be the quarantine period for the Pakistani team before it would start its mission on England.

The ECB and PCB will also discuss to limit the venues where matches are going to be played.

“At present we have to play three Tests and three T20 internationals but the number of Tests could be increased and the tour could start a bit early in July,” a PCB source told PTI.

We will consult captain and coach before any decision

The PCB source told PTI that the decision is not yet announced officially. But, England and Wales Cricket Board could propose to start the tour a bit earlier to extend the series.

However, talking to media PCB CEO, Wasim Khan, accepted that he will be discussing the road map to the England Tour with the ECB on 18th of this month but he refused to commit anything on the Tour extension.

“Things will be clear after the meeting but whatever decision we take we will consult our captains and head coaches before giving any confirmation,” Khan said.

Players concerned over safety and well-being: WI

Meanwhile, the West Indies Cricket board said that assurance of players is necessary to commit any assignment which does not seem possible in June.

“We will only travel to England to play the series if our players can be assured that it is safe to do so,” said WI in a recent media release.

“…we will continue our discussions with the ECB and other Internationals Boards on trying to find new dates,” it added.
