England tour of Pakistan cancelled: Big setback for PCB, After New Zealand now England withdraw from playing in Pakistan: “The ECB has a longstanding commitment to tour Pakistan as part of the Men’s Future Tours Programme in 2022.

“Earlier this year, we agreed to play two additional T20 World Cup warm-up games in Pakistan in October, adding a short women’s tour with double headers alongside the men’s games.

“The ECB Board convened this weekend to discuss these extra England Women’s and Men’s games in Pakistan and we can confirm that the Board has reluctantly decided to withdraw both teams from the October trip.
