Pakistan’s all-format captain, Babar Azam expressed his disappointment on England’s decision to cancel their historic tour of Pakistan.
Babar said that Pakistan cricket has always tried to accommodate other cricketing nations but we have not received the same treatment from them in return. He added that Pakistan cricket has always managed to bounce back in the face of adversity and this time will be no different.
Babar took to Twitter to send a message to the Pakistani cricketing fraternity.
He tweeted, “Disappointed, yet again. We have always tried to accommodate the interests of the game but others simply don’t. We have come a long way in our cricketing journey and it will only get better with time. We will not only survive but thrive as well. In insha’Allah.”
