Pakistan vs England: Full-strength England squad to tour Pakistan
England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) plan on sending their top squad for a tour in Pakistan in October this year.
The English team is all set to go against the national team in two T20Is in Rawalpindi, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) confirmed the news as the England team tours Pakistan since the last tour in 2005.
The sources said that ECB will announce the new policy regarding India Premier League (IPL) next week.
The development comes after Cricbuzz reported that key England players will most likely miss out on the T20I matches against the green shirts due to IPL.
Earlier New Zealand has also announced its top player will be participating in IPL, while second-string players will tour.
However, England announced a full-strength squad tour.
“As far as we are concerned, we will be planning for the Pakistan tour with a full-strength squad,” the source said, adding: “A policy on this is likely to be confirmed by next week.”
England is set to arrive in Pakistan on October 9 to play two T20Is on October 13 and 14, according to PCB, before flying to UAE for the ICC T20 World Cup.
The remainder of IPL 2021 is scheduled to take place in UAE from September 19 to October 15.
