The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has prohibited the national players to take their families along with them on the Pakistan tour of England in the upcoming days.
The decision has been taken due to the spreading of the Coronavirus, the situations are getting worse, especially in Pakistan, where the numbers have crossed up to 1 Lac and 30 Thousand.
The tour will be commenced by 30th July where both teams will sign in to a test match at the iconic Lord’s ground. The reports also clarified that Haris Sohail withdrew himself from the tour because the families aren’t allowed on the tour.
Pakistan players will spend 14 days in isolation as soon as they reach England before kicking-off the game in order to avoid spreading the global disease and then will be heading towards four weeks of training for their practice.

“The board has made it clear to players their families can’t travel with them and also explained to them it would be of no use even if their families reached and stayed in England separately. The entire squad can’t interact with their families in person until the tour is completed in September,” a source in the PCB was quoted as saying in The New Indian Express.
“…this time the board has told the players that as soon as they reach England they will spend around 14 days in quarantine in Birmingham before they move on to Manchester after staying in isolation and in a bio-secure environment for around three to four weeks for their practice and training,” the source added
