England Pakistan Tour Cancellation: They say that the desired wishes get fulfilled. The same wish was fulfilled for the IPL franchises as well. And, this happened when the England cricket team cancelled their tour of Pakistan. On the other hand, the English squad refused to tour Pakistan, and the IPL team owners were in bloom.
The decision of the England cricket team not to go to Pakistan became good news for all the teams playing in IPL 2021, with whom they play English cricketers. At the same time, this has dealt a blow to PCB’s campaign to return international cricket to the country again. Before England, the New Zealand team also left the tour and returned home.
England Pakistan Tour Cancellation
As India’s tour of England came to an end, many England cricketers pulled their hands from landing in the second half of IPL 2021. Those playing there also had an eclipse on playing later, especially about the players who were part of England’s tour of Pakistan. A bigger problem than this seemed to be the teams reaching the playoffs.
Because, at the same time, England had to play in Pakistan. But, after the decision of the England Cricket Board to cancel the tour of Pakistan, there is no danger of any such problem now.
CSK suffered a significant loss for not cancelling England’s tour of Pakistan
If England did not cancel the tour of Pakistan, then it would have been the most significant blow to Chennai Super Kings. Two big players of this team, Moeen Ali and Sam Karan were scheduled to go to Pakistan. But, after the cancellation of this tour, now the CSK team management will be happy. On the other hand, happiness will also be in KKR’s camp as their captain Eoin Morgan will remain with the team. However, it is difficult to say at the moment whether KKR will reach the playoffs.
England men’s team playing 2 T20Is in Pakistan
The England cricket team was to tour Pakistan in October. He had to play 2 T20 matches on this tour. These matches were to be played in the same Rawalpindi, where the New Zealand cricket team, being terrorised by the turmoil, decided to return home. England was to play the first T20 on the Pakistan tour on 13 October and the second on 14 October.
On the other hand, the IPL playoff matches will be held on October 10, 11, 13 and 15. The England team was looking at two T20s with Pakistan as the last preparation before the T20 World Cup.
