Tour cancellation ECB’s decision, not government’s, says British HC to Pakistan


“The British High Commission supported the tour, did not advise against in on security grounds,” Christian Turner tweets

The British government’s concerns about player safety played no part in the ECB’s decision to withdraw its men’s and women’s teams from their tours to Pakistan next month, according to the British High Commissioner to Pakistan, Christian Turner. In a statement posted on Twitter, Turner said the ECB’s decision not to tour was made independently of the country’s government, and that the High Commission had supported the tour.
