Pakistan’s captain Sarfraz Ahmed will take the World Cup 2019 trophy to the Prime Minster house on Thursday.
The skipper will leave for Dubai today (April 9) to bring the trophy for a special tour to Pakistan. The trophy will be displayed in the PM house in Islamabad and Imran Khan is likely to have a photo session with a glittering trophy.
The World Cup-winning captain of Pakistan Khan is expected to meet Sarfraz who will lead the side in the upcoming edition of the World Cup, penciled in from May 30 to July 14 in England and Wales.
It is pertinent to mention here that Sarfraz had taken rest along with five frontline players during the ODI series against Australia in the UAE. Now all the players will reunite in Lahore to get prepared for a long 2.5 months tour to the UK which covers the World Cup.
According to the team management, only those players clearing the fitness test will get the ticket for the UK. The boys have to score 17.5 or above points in YoYo test to impress the management.
The national team will firstly play England in the five-match ODI series followed by a T20I match against the hosts. The green shirts will play their opening match of the World Cup against West Indies on May 31 at Trent Bridge.
