Tom Harrison, the chief executive of the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), has flown to Pakistan, to repair their damaged relationships with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and its counterparts.
After the ECB abandoned sending their men and women teams to the men in green’s realm for limited-over series, the relations among the two boards were injured terribly.
Notably, ECB’s conclusion came in the enlightenment of Kiwis’ decision who turned down the ongoing tour moments before the first game kicked-start. New Zealand Cricket (NZC) quoted security threats they received from an unknown source and sidelined themselves after gathering million-dollar hospitality.
Following, ECB stated their verdict to call off the Pakistan tour citing their players’ mental well-being and COVID at its peak.
The two boards were bashed for not paying back Pakistan despite the fact that PCB made a full tour to both of the nations during New Zealand’s Christchurch crisis and COVID on the climax in England.

Harrison will be meeting the PCB chairman, Ramiz Raja, to ensure England’s future tours to Pakistan and that the country will remain committed to their upcoming scheduled Test tour at the end of 2022. The country last visited the men in green’s nation in 2005.
