Previously expected 2021 England tours of Pakistan are uncertain. The England country was planned to play in Pakistan for the cricket series. The withdrawal of New Zealand on Friday has raised new distresses at both public and authority levels.

Security issues were brought to the attention as the prime reason for the Kiwi team’s cancellation.

However, according to The Guardian, this weekend will demonstrate the final decision. The England and Wales Cricket Board will come up with a conclusion for next month’s England vs Pakistan series.

The UK Time News investigated that this tour of England is the first since 2005. The act’s intent is to show appreciation towards PCB.

Nevertheless, ECB requires further a day to present the final decision. The verdict also depends on the team’s captain, Eoin Morgan. The team is still missing the Bangladesh and India tours because of security causes.

Since 2021 England tours of Pakistan are uncertain, Shahid Afridi countered with a tweet on Saturday, 18th of September. In response to ECB’s announcement, Afridi gave importance to the ECB’s actions instead of words.

He also assured the intensive safety of this land and elaborated its worth of being a safe place for visiting. Besides, this was an exclusive message to all international cricketers.

He also reminded of last year’s trip of Pakistan to England, despite the pandemic. He illustrated that Pakistan supported this country in spite of the tough COVID 19 situation.
