Cricket has once again been badly affected due to Corona virus. On Tuesday, 7 members of England, who were part of the ODI series against Sri Lanka, were found to be Corona positive. For this reason, the sword started hanging on the series played between England and Pakistan. But England announced a new team under the leadership of Ben Stokes for the ODI series. The Pakistan Cricket Board says that it is in constant touch with the England Cricket Board.
The ODI series between Pakistan and England will start in Cardiff from July 8. The Pakistan Cricket Board has contacted the ECB in view of the safety of its players. The PCB issued a statement saying, “Ever since we have heard the news of corona cases in the England team, we are in touch with the ECB keeping in mind the safety of the players.”
The Pakistan Cricket Board is satisfied with the response received from the ECB and has decided to proceed with the series. The PCB said, “The PCB is satisfied with the assurances and guarantees of the ECB and is happy with the protocol for the safety of Pakistan players.”

However, the PCB has issued orders to the team management to take extra precautions related to Corona. “The PCB team is in touch with the management and has advised them to take extra precautions,” the statement said.
After Corona’s case surfaced in the England team, the ECB announced a new team and appointed all-rounder Ben Stokes as the captain of the team. In the team that England has announced, there are 9 players who have not made their debut yet.
