PCB to Consult PM Imran for Resumption of Cricket Activities in Pakistan

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided to take Prime Minister Imran Khan into confidence before resuming cricketing activities in the country. The board has decided to prepare a bio-secure roadmap to get approval in this regard.

As per sources, team management is interested in conducting a training camp of national cricketers ahead of the much-important England tour, starting later next month. The camp is likely to start in the first week of June, after Eid at Lahore’s National Cricket Academy (NCA).
