LAHORE: The Covid-19 tests of Pakistan’s entire England bound squad comprising 43 members — including 29 players and 14 officials — will be held on June 22 at their respective cities of residence.

The team is most likely to leave for England on June 28 through a chartered flight to be arranged by the England and Cricket Board (ECB), the hosts of the series, comprising three Tests and as many T20Is, to be held in August and September. The full itinerary of the tour is likely to be announced on Friday.

After reaching England, the squad is likely to stay in Birmingham for a 14-day quarantine period before starting the camp training.

The Covid-19 tests will be conducted in Lahore, Karachi, Rawalpindi and in some other cities.
