Before the tour of England, Dr. Sohail Saleem, director of medical and sports science of Pakistan Cricket Board, has described the Pakistan team’s tour of England as a big risk. He said, ‘This (seizure) is a big risk during the epidemic.’
He said, ‘We have not had such an experience (playing during the epidemic), but it will be a new experience for both teams. An epidemic means danger, but they (players) are considered to entertain people.’
