International Cricket Council (ICC) has granted Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) permission to use Edhi foundation’s logo on Pakistan cricket team’s official kit for the upcoming tour of England, Express News reported on Friday.

According to a correspondent, Pakistan team captains Misbahul Haq, Azhar Ali, and Sarfraz Ahmed will attend a ceremony later today to endorse the charitable organisation before departing for England tomorrow morning at 9:00am.

This would be the first time in Pakistan cricket team’s history that players would wear logos of a charitable organisation on their official kit.

The tour of England will begin with four Test matches starting next month, with the first match being played at Lord’s cricket ground in London on July 14.

Prior to that, the national side will take part in a two-week training camp in Hampshire to acclimatise themselves to playing conditions in England.

Yesterday, British Prime Minister David Cameron said in a written message to the Men in Green and PCB that he hopes England cricket team will also tour Pakistan in the near future.

“I hope that one day, in the not too distant future, I will be able to wish the England cricket team a successful tour of Pakistan,” the British premier had said.

Pakistan last hosted a Test match on home soil in 2009 against Sri Lanka which was abandoned following a terrorist attack against the away team as they were on their way to the Gaddafi stadium for the third day’s play.

    The man behind the idea should given all the praise as wearing the Edhi logo will not only help promote this most noble foundation of the country, but also promote the positive image of Pakistan tainted by all the negative publicity created by the acts of some of our own bad apples and further amplified by the badmouthing of our vindictive neighbor.Recommend

    @Cricket Fan: No one in the world are fools to believe if someone bad mouths another person/country. Come out of your dream world and accept the bad actions of your dear country men. Also no one will accept people who have people who kill other people.Recommend
