The England Cricket Board (ECB) might be forced to send either the B or C team for Pakistan’s voyage in January 2021 for match series.
England had earlier decided to send their players as a sign of thankfulness after Pakistan recently visited them for a test and a T20I series.
However, the tour is confirmed, but it looks like there will be no senior team visiting Pakistan as England is facing difficulties in organizing their players, shifting them to different cricketing leagues and tournaments.
The talks were made so long after the security concerns in Pakistan were no more a significant issue that could have been used as a card not to send any team for cricketing events. In recent times, many countries have toured Pakistan, such as Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, either for goodwill.
After the fifth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL 2020) was entirely held in Pakistan, the foreign players promoted a sign of peace from the cricket-loving nation. It became why more players are willing to tour for the revival of cricket in the country.
With ECB to send a massive squad to Sri Lanka for the test series in the initial 2021, England might fall short on their players and manage the workload as the Big Bash League (BBL) is also on the list.
