PM Imran Khan will meet the T20 squad in the upcoming days, arrangements for which are currently underway

Prime Minister Imran Khan will be meeting the Pakistan team ahead of the ICC T20 World Cup in an attempt to raise their confidence following the New Zealand and England tours' abandonment.

According to sources, the premier, also the patron-in-chief of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), will meet the T20 squad in the upcoming days, arrangements for which are currently underway.

While the date and timings have yet to be finalized, sources claim that there is a high probability of the meeting being held during the National T20 Cup that is starting from September 23.

PM Khan is expected to share experiences and tips from his days as captain of the Pakistan team.

Moreover, PCB Chairperson Ramiz Raja is also expected to attend the meeting along with the players.

The Kiwis arrived in Pakistan last week after a gap of more than 18 years for a limited-overs series amidst strict security protocols in place for their protection. However, shortly before the first ODI was about to kick off, the New Zealand government issued a security alert and decided to call off the tour.
