PCB’s selection committee headed by Misbah-ul-Haq is set to announce the players for training camp on Wednesday. 18 centrally contracted and emerging players will be called up for the camp.

Board officials will brief Misbah about the final number of players in the training camp. Misbah has contacted his fellow selectors and they have been directed to prepare the initial names for the training camp.

It is to be known that the ECB had earlier convinced PCB after successful talks over biosecurity arrangements during the tour. The England board proposed to start the series with the first Test from August 5 instead of July 30.

A squad of 25 players, both for Tests and T20Is, will arrive in England via chartered plane earlier in July, and players will remain in quarantine for 14 days before going out for training.
