Islamabad: PTI Chairman Imran Khan has assured British High Commissioner Christian Turner that his party’s protest rally or sit-in will not affect Pakistan-England Test match scheduled to be held in Rawalpindi on December 1.

PTI sought permission from Islamabad administration to allow it to proceed from different routes of Islamabad to reach Faizabad in Rawalpindi.

Although application does not clearly state whether it will be a one-day gathering or a sit-in, intention is clear that November 26 rally can be converted into a sit-in. British High Commissioner and Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Ramiz Raja called on former premier at his Zaman Park residence in Lahore and inquired about his health.

British High Commissioner condemned assassination attempt on PTI Chief and expressed his best wishes for his speedy recovery. Imran Khan asked PCB Chairman and British diplomat to continue their preparations for match, saying his movement will not affect 5-day match. Senior PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry was also present in the meeting.

England have not played a Test match in Pakistan since 2005 — having declined to tour since because of the country's precarious security situation — but played a successful Twenty20 series earlier this year.
