The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) will review security ahead of the Pakistan tour after the Taliban takeover in Afghanistan.

However, the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan has raised concerns over new security issues in neighboring Pakistan.

“For any tour, there’s ongoing security procedures and checks. We continue to plan for the men’s and women’s tour of Pakistan this autumn," an ECB spokesperson was quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.

England are scheduled to visit Pakistan for the first time in 16 years in October, with the men’s team due to play two T20s in Rawalpindi.

The Women's side will play three ODIS on 17, 19 and 21 October at the Pindi Cricket Stadium.

The matches were earlier scheduled to take place at the National Stadium, Karachi, but have been rescheduled due to operational and logistical reasons.
