The departure of the Pakistani cricket team to England was repulsed by two days after the final of the Pakistani Super League was rescheduled for June 24 in Abu Dhabi.
Earlier, the PSL was due to end on June 20, and the national team was due to leave for England on 23 June to play three ODIs and three Twenty20s.
However, with the PSL final postponed by four days, the national team will leave for England on June 25. The first ODI is scheduled for July 8 in Cardiff.
Abu Dhabi will host the remaining 20 PSL matches after the post-twentieth Premier League was postponed in Pakistan in March, when several players and support staff were positive for COVID-19.
Pakistan’s Cricket Council hopes the PSL will resume on June 7, subject to permission from the United Arab Emirates government on Wednesday for crew members to begin work at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on June 5.
Players and staff from six franchises arrived in Abu Dhabi last week on charter flights from Pakistan. Their seven-day isolation ended on Wednesday afternoon, after which the PCB said the players would start training in Abu Dhabi.
