The chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board, Ramiz Raja, said on Twitter on Monday that he was disappointed with the decision of the English Cricket Board (ECB) to abolish the cricket tours for men and women. Ramiz Raja said England failed a member of their cricket fraternity when it was most needed. “Disappointed with England, withdrawal from their commitment and a member of their Cricket fraternity failed when it was most needed. We will survive,” Ramiz Raja tweeted.
The PCB chief further said that it is a wake-up call for the Pakistan team to become world beaters for other teams to stand in line to play against them without making excuses.
Disappointed with England, pulling out of their commitment and failing a member of their Cricket fraternity if need be. Survive we will inshallah. A wake-up call for the Pak team to become the best team in the world, where teams can stand in line to play it without making excuses.

“A wake-up call for the Pak team to become the best team in the world, allowing teams to queue to play them without apologizing,” he said.
The ECB announced on Monday that it had reluctantly decided to withdraw men’s and women’s teams from the tour to Pakistan.
“The ECB Council met over the weekend to discuss these extra English women’s and men’s matches in Pakistan, and we can confirm that the Council has reluctantly decided to withdraw both teams from the October trip,” the ECB said in a statement.
