As part of that precaution, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has banned players from traveling to England with family. Even if the family goes separately, they cannot be met there.

A PCB source told PTI that the board had made it clear to the players that they could not be taken with the family. It has even been said that there is no benefit in having a separate family. No one from the entire team will be able to see the family until the tour ends in September.

A total of 29 players and 14 officials will be sent to England by the PCB.
