Imran Khan, the head of PTI, assured Christian Turner, the British High Commissioner to Pakistan, and Ramiz Raja, the head of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), that the upcoming long march would not interfere with the Test series between Pakistan and England, which will begin in Rawalpindi on December 1.
The PTI has declared that it will launch a protracted march against the current administration on November 26 from Rawalpindi.
Prior to this year’s T20 World Cup, England visited Pakistan after a lengthy absence of 17 years to play a seven-match T20 series, which the visitors won 4-3. The second part of the English Test team’s trip to Pakistan will include three Test matches at Rawalpindi (Dec. 1-5), Multan (Dec. 9-13), and Karachi (Dec 17-21).
In their combined discussion with Imran at his Zaman Park mansion, Turner and Ramiz discussed the significance of the England team’s visit to Pakistan and shared their worries about how the security of the visitors would be jeopardized in the event of political upheaval in the nation.
Imran, the captain of the 1992 World Cup-winning Pakistani team, was informed during the discussion that the aforementioned series was important for both nations’ cricket and needed to be free of any potential security-related issues.
Imran’s reaction was quite encouraging; he told Turner and Ramiz that his party members would not disrupt the Rawalpindi Test and emphasized that the English squad would not be in danger from his political campaign.
Imran is a fervent political rival of Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif, who is also PCB’s patron-in-chief, hence it is unclear if Ramiz went to Zaman Park after receiving approval from him.
It should be noted that Rawalpindi City is under the control of the PTI in Punjab. Therefore, the provincial government is directly responsible for setting up and maintaining security in the city.
To get assurances about the security required for the orderly conduct of the Test series, Ramiz and Christian still preferred to meet with the PTI chairman.
