Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is considering changing the venue for the first Test between Pakistan and England, which is scheduled to be played at Pindi Cricket Stadium.

The development is under consideration amid Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI)’s long march in Islamabad.

The opening Test of the three-match series is slated to be played in Rawalpindi from December 1 to 5. However, due to PTI’s march towards the twin cities, PCB might consider plan B.

According to reports, the Board is in contact with the federal government on this matter. If the situation worsens, the opening Test will be shifted to Karachi which is already scheduled to host the third Test from December 17-21.

However, Multan will host the second Test.

In case of the change in venue, the England team’s arrival schedule will also be revised. They are set to touch down in Islamabad on November 27.

England toured Pakistan in September-October this year for seven-match T20I series. The visitors party won the series 4-3.

Schedule of Tests

December 1-5 – 1st Test, Rawalpindi

December 9-13 – 2nd Test, Multan

December 17-21 – 3rd Test, Karachi
