‘Massive moment for cricket’ Moeen hails England’s decision to tour Pakistan


Cape Town: Moeen Ali hailed and welcomed England’s decision to tour Pakistan in October 2021 for two T20I matches in Karachi.

The all-rounder termed it as ‘a massive moment for cricket’ while talking in a conference call from Cape Town, South Africa.

“It’s massive. Having been there not so long ago, it was an amazing experience to play the PSL there. We can’t wait to go there in the future. It’s a massive moment for cricket going forward,” he said.

Moeen Ali also stated that Pakistan helped England cricket and tour the country during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The teams that came to England this summer – West Indies and Pakistan – helped massively. They went through the whole bubble thing when cricket was on the edge. They helped massively with that. I think it’s right we go back after such a long time for the game itself and for Pakistan and cricket in the country,” he added.

England will play two T20Is on October 14 and 15 at National Stadium in their first visit to Pakistan since 2005.

Moeen played for Multan Sultans in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) season five group-stage earlier this year. He couldn’t return for playoffs last week as England is in South Africa for limited-over series.
