“Aamir may return on the birth of his second child in August, while Haris will miss the tour for family reasons,” the PCB said in a statement.
“Pakistan will send 28 players and 14 players to play for three Tests and three T20Is in August and September. The team as well as the pre-series and series schedule will be announced in due time,” he said.
Earlier in the week, the PCB canceled a players training camp at the National Cricket Academy here due to rising cases of COVID-19 in the country.
Instead, the PCB asked its English counterpart ECB to prepare an itinerary that allows the Pakistan team to reach London in early June. The squad was originally scheduled to land in Britain on 6 July.
Pakistan are scheduled to play three Tests and three ODIs against England in August and will need to complete the quarantine period.
