The England Cricket Board (ECB) had issued a statement yesterday confirming that it had decided to withdraw both of its teams from the Pakistan tour.

“This was a decision made by the ECB, which is independent of the British government based on concerns for player welfare. The British High Commission supported the tour, did not advise against it on security grounds, and our travel advice for Pakistan has not changed. I have been a champion of international cricket’s return to Pakistan and will redouble my efforts in advance of England’s autumn 2022 tour. My thanks to all at the PCB who have worked so hard in support of that,” he added.

The ECB’s decision came three days after New Zealand pulled out from their tour of Pakistan citing a security threat.
