FM Qureshi raise cricket series issue in a meeting with his English counterpart


LONDON: Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi talked about England’s cancellation of the Pakistan tour for the cricket series with his English counterpart, Liz Truss. 

The two heads of foreign offices of their respective countries met on Tuesday. During their meeting, the cricket series between England and Pakistan also came under discussion.

It must be noted here that England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) withdrew their men and women teams from the Pakistan tour citing security concerns having an impact on players’ minds.

This decision came days after New Zealand left Pakistan tour just minutes before the start of the first ODI, citing security threats in the country.

Both the withdrawals created a huge impact on Pakistan’s cricket after their cricket board made immense efforts over the years to revive international cricket in the country.
