Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief executive Wasim Khan has revealed that there is no deal in place for England to tour Pakistan in 2022.

This comes as Pakistan are currently in England, where they are preparing for the Test and T20 series.

With Pakistan having travelled to England in the midst of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, many people feel that England should return the favour.

However, while Wasim admitted that England touring Pakistan will be hugely beneficial, he noted that now is not the time to discuss such things.

“Will that benefit Pakistan cricket in future? Of course it will,” he told the PCB Podcast as quoted by Cricket Pakistan. “Have we struck a deal with them right now for them to come? … Of course we didn’t. Now is not the time to do that. It’s all about timing.

“Conversations will take place with ECB (England and Wales Cricket Board) and they will do the right thing by us as well.

“We are making decisions not just for what’s good for Pakistan, but what’s right for global cricket. Showing solidarity is absolutely the right thing for us to be doing. West Indies are doing it, we’ve done it.”

Pakistan are scheduled to play three Tests and three T20 Internationals against England, with the first Test starting on August 5 in Manchester and the T20 series beginning on August 28 at the same venue.
