Islamabad: Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry welcomed the ECB’s decision to come to Pakistan for a full tour next year.
“Announcement of ECB to visit Pakistan next year is a welcome step, I would like to thank the stars of the cricket world, diplomatic community, media and cricket lovers around the world on their support for Pakistan cricket. Yet again Pak has emerged as strong and resilient nation,” he tweeted.
Earlier, PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja had said that the ECB chairman had committed to touring Pakistan next year, after pulling out from the 2021 series.
He, however, had said Watmore had failed to give him a satisfying response when Raja had asked him whether the situation would change next year as well and if England would opt out of that series too based on excuses of players’ mental well being and security.
