Ian Watmore, the chairman of the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has finally broken his silence on the Pakistan tour cancellation. Aside from apologizing, he said that ECB is planning their tour to the cricket-loving nation by 2022.
Watmore added that the decision was taken following England’s players’ mental wellbeing. The three lions are ready to voyage Pakistan for a long trip next year to compensate for the one, that has been lost.
Notably, the two teams were set to meet in a limited-over series before the T20 World Cup 2021. The encounters could have worked as a practice forum for both.
“I’m very sorry to anyone who feels hurt or let down by our decision, particularly in Pakistan. The decision the board made was an extremely difficult one and the board made it with the primary consideration being the welfare and mental health of our players and staff.”
“We are up to a proper, a rescheduled tour of Pakistan next year. We will get on with planning that. We will have longer to plan that trip,”
As the England player unit recently got furious over ECB’s decision without consulting them, the board has now clarified that the conclusion was unitarily taken without conferring it with the players.
“ECB took the decision on its own judgment and did not consult players before taking it”.
