Recently, England’s head coach Chris Silverwood hinted towards a possible short tour of Pakistan very soon.

“I think we are getting there [in terms of planning to visit Pakistan for a tour] to be honest. Personally, I’d have no problem with that. I’ve never been to Pakistan so it would be nice to go and have a look. And I know our batsmen would look forward to batting on their wickets. For me, it’s great that it’s back as a topic of conversation again. We are looking to get back there,” he was quoted saying.
