Australia confident of hosting India, could tour England

Pakistan not using England tour as leverage says PCB CEO

'We could send a team': Cricket Australia chief upbeat over England tour

On last week's The Cricket Show, we got the latest on how and when the West Indies games might take place and on this week's episode we will get an update from the Pakistan camp through CEO Wasim Khan.

Cricket Australia chief Kevin Roberts has sounded confident about touring England for a limited-overs series, and also India's tour Down Under, later this year.

England are planning on playing Test series against West Indies and Pakistan behind closed doors in bio-secure venues this summer. I'd be really surprised if we can't get the Indian tour away.

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has launched a nationwide campaign to celebrate more than 200 initiatives from cricketers across Britain to support the country in its battle against coronavirus.

Australia had planned to tour England in July for one-day and Twenty20 series before the COVID-19 pandemic plunged the global schedule into doubt.

"I think there's some chance we could send a team over", Roberts told the Daily Telegraph.

Khan said Pakistan will have ample opportunities to prove teams like England and Australia that it is safe to travel to, adding that right now the focus is on trying to resume cricket, which has come to a halt due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"We will have an extended squad".

'We were presented with a lot of the planning and detail that the European Central Bank are putting into place for this summer, especially on the operational side, right from the plane for travel to the bio-secure venues we will play in'. "We're probably about a week away from that".

"We are not going to jeopardise their health".

"We hope this campaign will shine a light on the awesome work being done, help signpost people to the support they need and provide a feeling of hope and solidarity for cricket fans during this challenging time".

Current guidelines mean any arrivals to the United Kingdom from overseas would require a 14-day quarantine period, but there is a chance that could also double as a training period if the venue can be signed off as "bio-secure". They won just two of seven matches at the 2017 World Cup in England to miss out on the semi-finals and since then, have won only three of 17 outings.
