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

Although the application does not clearly state whether it will be a one-day gathering or a sit-in, the intention is clear that the November 26 rally can be converted into a sit-in.

The British high commissioner and Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Ramiz Raja called on the former premier at his Zaman Park residence in Lahore and inquired about his health.

The British high commissioner condemned the assassination attempt on the PTI chief and expressed his best wishes for his speedy recovery.

Imran Khan asked the PCB chairman and the British diplomat to continue their preparations for the match, saying his movement will not affect the 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.

They are due to arrive in Islamabad on November 26, with the first Test in Rawalpindi from December 1-5.
