England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) chief executive Tom Harrison has held a meeting with PCB chairman Rameez Raja to try to mend fences with Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) after a visit last month. According to PCB sources, in addition to meeting Raja, Harrison is also due to meet with Prime Minister Imran Khan in Islamabad. He will then travel to Dubai to conclude the T20 World Cup meeting with the ICC Executive Board on November 17th.
As soon as Australia announced plans to visit Pakistan next year, Harrison made his trip. Let us know that England was visiting Pakistan in October for the first time since 2005, when a group of women came back for the first time. But later the ECB ended the trip by citing security reasons. This election of England was strongly opposed in Pakistan.
Later, ECB chairman Ian Whatmore apologized to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for dropping the men’s and women’s team’s trip to Pakistan, and confirmed that the board would prepare a three-match series and five ODI matches next year. Before sending to England, New Zealand again refused to play in Pakistan just before the first ODI citing security reasons and banning the trip.
