Cricketing nations are making the last-minute cancellation to tour Pakistan. Earlier Kiwis cast off the tour to Pakistan due to security reasons just a few hours before the ODI tour. Later, both England men and women were supposed to tour Pakistan in October, England men’s were supposed to play 2 T20s just before the T20 World cup as a warm-up for players whereas men’s would have traveled directly to UAE for a world cup. England women’s would have stayed a little longer for an ODI tour post T20, Pakistan board and fans are completely frustrated by this decision and last-minute cancellations. Former Pakistan captains Moin Khan, Wasim Akram, and Rashid Latif have told the nation to be together and support the Pakistan team in this tough time.
The relations between the two boards are really good: Wasim Akram
Wasim Akram has felt that it’s time to concentrate on the T20 World cup and he expressed his disappointment but wants to support the nation as much as possible to prove everyone wrong.
“I know, you all are disappointed. I am also disappointed and sad. But life has to go on. Support Pakistan team in the T20 World Cup”, Wasim Akram said.
“We will criticize them but afterward and with solutions. But right now, it is the need of the hour to come together as a nation and support our team. Fine if teams are not touring, but if Pakistan does well, then the whole world will be behind to play against them,” Akram said. In the end, it was Rashid Latif who felt PCB should approach NZC and ECB again as the relations between the two boards are really good”, he added.
“Only 7-8 teams in the world who play international cricket really well. What I feel is PCB should approach New Zealand again. I think PCB’s relations with NZC and ECB are really good and you never know, when the situation will change for good. New Zealand and England both should tour Pakistan. It is a safe country,” he said.
