England and Pakistan are currently in talks regarding the start of the first cricket test in Rawalpindi after the touring party, which includes captain Ben Stokes, was impacted by illness; a decision is anticipated on Thursday morning.
It is thought that a bug or virus, not Covid, is to blame for those affected, including England’s captain Ben Stokes. As a result, England has optionally cancelled their penultimate training session before the Test match on Wednesday morning.
Root admitted, “I didn’t feel well [on Tuesday], but I felt better this morning, so hopefully it was just a 24-hour thing. I haven’t had a chance to meet many of the guys, so when we return to the hotel, we’ll check on everyone’s progress.”
The world is larger than cricket, according to Stoke After the natural disaster earlier this year, which resulted in at least 1,600 fatalities and millions of people in need of relief, Stokes said on Monday that he will be contributing his match money from the series to the Pakistan Floods Appeal.
