The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has started work on various aspects for another home series this year in view of fears of hosting the T20 World Cup and Asia Cup.

According to the Dawn newspaper, the PCB is working on a short-form cricket home series in October and November if conditions improve with Code-19.

The PCB is considering inviting England to a three-match T20 series.

It may be recalled that the PCB has agreed to go to England for a full series of three Tests and T20 matches in July this year with the formal permission of the Government of Pakistan.

According to credible sources, after the ICC meeting, the PCB is working on three new projects where important decisions like T20 World Cup were to be taken but the meeting was adjourned till June 10.

There are reports that the T20 World Cup will not be held this year, although Cricket Australia and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) have not agreed to hold the tournament next year.

According to sources, Cricket Australia wants the T20 World Cup to be postponed to next year and India to host the World Cup in 2022 instead of 2021.

The PCB has raised the issue of the BCCI’s decision before the ICC meeting and demanded an inquiry into the matter.

Other cricket boards from the ICC also protested the issue, calling the news of the verdicts a matter of concern.

The meeting, led by members of the ICC Code of Conduct, agreed to immediately conduct an independent inquiry in collaboration with international experts.

It may be recalled that the Pakistani cricket team will travel to England in July this year where the tour will start on August 5 with the first Test match.

The national team played a series of three Tests and three T20I matches in England and the tour is expected to start on August 5 with the first Test match.

According to the schedule, the Pakistan team will play its first Test match against the host team from August 5 to 9 at the Old Trafford Stadium in Manchester.

The second Test of the series will be played from August 13 to 17, while the third Test will be played from August 21 to 25 in Edgbaston.

The Test series will be followed by a three-match T20 series between the two teams, which will be played at the Old Trafford Stadium on August 28, August 30 and September 1, respectively.

The Pakistani team is likely to start preparations and practice for the tour at the National Cricket Academy in Lahore from June 1 and 25 players will be sent to England on a special chartered flight.

The national team is expected to leave for England in the first week of July, where the national team will be quarantined for 14 days as a precautionary measure against the corona virus.
