The Pakistani cricket Board came under intense pressure to send a team to England or not after 10 players tested positive for COVID-19, but in the end went on a tour to ensure the resumption of the game on the background of the pandemic, a top official said.

Last month, the 10 players left from the England tour after they failed to clear the test for the coronavirus.

Shadab Khan, Haris Rauf, Ali Haider, Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Rizwan, Wahab Riaz, Imran Khan, Mohammad Hafeez, Mohammad Hasnain and at Bhatti were among those who gave a positive result in the first round. A few players subsequently withdrawn a second test and joined the squad in England.

Pakistan will play a three match test series against England, beginning from August 5, after three T20 international matches.

“The Council was under pressure when tests many players are positive. Thus sending cricket team in England during a pandemic coronavirus was quite a hard decision,” Wasim, General Director of KSP Khan was quoted by Pakistani channel.

“We have fulfilled our plan to go ahead with the tour, because we first decided to send a team to play our role in the restoration of world cricket and keep it on track, it is essential to continue with the matches.”

Khan also emphasized that ‘cricket and COVID-19 will have to coexist’.

He insisted that there was no other reason for going ahead with the tour to England, other than to ensure that the international cricket resumed in the background COVID-19 pandemic.

He said the PCB also took note that the West Indies had proceeded with their tour of England, despite the pandemic.

“When we are asked about our decision to continue the tour to England, the same question should also be put in the team West Indies cricket, which also continues the scheduled matches,” he said.

“The West Indies (cricket team) decided to go to England, when the situation was worse there (due to pandemic).”

Khan said international teams had different ideas about playing in Pakistan.

“They are more willing to come now. Tell me, why aren’t these teams like Sri Lanka, Bangladesh to come to the tests, and the white cricket ball, before we were captured. We also brought the MCC side and the Bangladesh women’s team. All of this gives us confidence that more teams will be in the near future in Pakistan”.

Discarded Pakistan wicket-batsman Kamran Akmal on Tuesday defended the strange behavior of his younger brother Umar Akmal, saying, the establishment of cricket in the country has failed to cope with the talented batsman.

Umar is currently serving a three-year ban for not reporting place-fixing approaches, but appealed against the decision of the independent Tribunal of the Pakistan cricket Board. Date of the hearing has not yet been determined.

“The off-field activities is nothing new in Pakistan cricket. Management team and a captain should know how to deal with such players. Look how Inzi bhai (Inzamam-ul-Haq) treated Shoaib’s (Akhtar), (Mohammad) Asif and Shahid (Afridi). If this was done with Omar Akmal, things could be otherwise”, – quotes its words a site cricket Pakistan.

Kamran also expressed dissatisfaction with the holding in the team, despite good performances in domestic cricket.

“I perform in domestic cricket and PSL (Pakistan super League) in the last five years, but despite this I never got a chance to play for Pakistan,” he said.

“In the recent past, a couple of coaches didn’t like me, so I stayed on the sidelines. It is unfair to keep me from the test and T20I side, especially because I can play solely as a batsman. If Matthew Wade can come back in a average of 18-20, why didn’t I averaged about 60”, – he added.

Kamran last played for Pakistan in 2017 in the West Indies, despite a successful career in the national team during a career spanning 53 tests, 157 ODIs and 58 t20s.

Kamran also advised the national selectors to choose players based on performances in domestic cricket and not RAP, and drawing Parallels with the Indian Premier League (IPL).

“Players are selected based on performance in the RAP and those who do well in domestic cricket are ignored. It’s not that you make a good team,” he said.

“If India started to do that, they would have the entire team selected from the IPL.

“Tournaments such as IPL and RAP is good for endurance and confidence, but the performances that count of four-day cricket,” he concluded.
