Pakistanis curiously waiting for England’s re-confirmation to tour Pakistan


KARACHI: As New Zealand disappointed cricket fans in Pakistan by withdrawing from the tour just minutes before the first ODI in Rawalpindi, all eyes are now on England as they are yet to re-confirm their two-T20Is tour to the country next month. 

New Zealand Cricket (NZC)’s cancelation of the Pakistan tour citing security threats put things at stake for Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) as far as hosting international teams was concerned.

England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) had decided to review their decision and security situation in the country which was blamed for security loopholes by New Zealand’s government/security agencies.

However, cricket fans in Pakistan are hopeful that England will tour Pakistan next month to play two T20Is.

Earlier this year, ECB confirmed their tour to Pakistan to play two T20Is on October 13, and 14 in Rawalpindi.
