Karachi: Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi wants England to tour Pakistan after the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) helped England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) last year during tough COVID-19 situation.

‘Boom Boom’ thinks it is time for ECB to show their appreciation of PCB through actions and not words. He reminded Pakistan is a safe place to tour.

ECB will make a decision on the Pakistan tour within the next 24-48 hours after New Zealand unilaterally postponed Pakistan tour on a security alert.
