- Venue switch from Rawalpindi to Karachi being considered
- England’s Test squad are due to fly to Pakistan on 26 November
England’s first Test in Pakistan for 17 years could be set for a late move from Rawalpindi to Karachi in response to political unrest in the country.
The recent assassination attempt on the former prime minister Imran Khan has given rise to a possible protest march to Islamabad by supporters of his PTI party this month. With both teams due to be based in the capital when the first Test is staged in neighbouring Rawalpindi from 1 December, a switch is being considered.
