With no more than five months in ICC ODI World Cup 2023, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is considering ‘safety measures’ for the national team to survive throughout the mega-event. For this, it is planning to invite Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and Bangladesh for the ODI series at home.
PCB considers that the bulk of the series will play a crucial role to enhance the team’s morale and practice before the World Cup. As a result, they will be able to execute better to tackle the obstacles, in order to boost their chances to lift the trophy.
As per sources, PCB has approached England Cricket Board (ECB), Cricket South Africa (CSA), New Zealand Cricket (NZC), and Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB). It has been discussed to send the teams for potential bilateral, or tri-nation ODI series in the Pakistani realm.
PCB yet to get response from boards for ODI series
The sources further reveal that PCB is planning to host these series in August, considering that World Cup is aligned for October this year. If it will be bilateral series, a three or five-match series will be taken into consideration depending on the time frame.
The PCB is yet to get a response from each of the four boards. The positive results of the offer will not only grant Pakistan to prepare for the World Cup but also for Asia Cup 2023, scheduled to take place in Pakistan. Alongside being beneficial for Pakistan, it will be equally fruitful for other nations to prepare for upcoming ventures.
