Vaughan urges England to play against Pakistan, suggest venue if Pak is not safe
Former England captain Michael Vaughan wants his country to play against Pakistan. He has suggested a new venue if Pakistan is not safe to travel to. He is against the cancelling of the tour. Earlier, New Zealand abandoned their limited-overs series against the Men in Green due to attack threats outside the stadium.
England Men’s and Women’s teams are scheduled to play in Pakistan. But after New Zealand’s departure, the series is under serious jeopardy.
Vaughan wants the proposed two-match T20I series to go ahead but in the UAE. “It would seem sensible to me to try and move England’s Pakistan games to the UAE rather than cancel the tour if it’s deemed unsafe to travel! Hopefully, the games for the Men’s & Women’s teams can take place rather than a full cancellation,” tweeted Michael Vaughan.

Earlier, South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Sri Lanka have toured Pakistan without any problem. Meanwhile, former and current Pakistan cricketers have slammed New Zealand for its decision. Legendary cricketer Wasim Akram was not happy with what New Zealand did in recent times. He asked the authorities to ensure cricket returns to their country again.
