Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman and Ex-Cricketer Imran Khan has assured the British High Commissioner Christian Turner and chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Ramiz Raja that his party’s “Haqeeqi Azadi” [genuine freedom] March will not interfere with the first cricket Test between Pakistan and England in Rawalpindi.
Imran greeted Turner and Raja at his apartment in Zaman Park. They scanned the former prime minister’s health and criticized the November 3 gun attack on him during the long march in Wazirabad. Additionally, they addressed topics of mutual interest.
Imran has called for a gathering of his followers in Rawalpindi on Saturday. The England team will arrive in Pakistan after 17 years the following day to begin the Test series against Pakistan. The first Test will begin on December 1 at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium.
Imran assured me that the PTI long march won’t affect the Rawalpindi Test. “You continue the preparations; there will be no hindrance to the Pindi Test due to our movement,” Imran told the British high commissioner and the PCB chairman.
Karachi was named as the alternative venue to host the first Test match, but last week it was reported that the original schedule would not be altered. The march, which was delayed due to an attempt to assassinate on Imran Khan, will pass through Rawalpindi on November 26.
