Showbiz celebrities and other citizens are sad over England squad decision
Saba Qamar, Adnan Siddiqui and others said the England team canceled the Pakistan tour.
LAHORE: (UrduPoint / UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News-September 21st, 2021) Like all other Pakistanis, the cast are also equally in pain over the decision of the England cricket team to cancel the tour to Pakistan this year.
Cricket fans across the country are sad after England also reluctantly decided to join the movement.
Speaking to Twitter, Saba Qmar said: “Extremely sad for cricket fans in Pakistan. 100% behind @TheRealPCB In sha Allah we will rise again.”
Actor Adnan Siddiqui criticized England’s decision, calling the team “unprofessional”.
“Very unprofessional behavior by New Zealand and UK #cricketteams. We don’t have to be subject to them. Shun #colonialhangover.”
The PCB chairman also reacted to the England squad’s decision.
He tweeted: “Disappointed with England, withdrawing from engagement and defaulting on a member of their Locust fellowship when she needed it most. Survive, we inchallah. A wake-up call for the Pak team to become the best team in the world for teams to line up to play them without making excuses, “wrote Ramiz Raja.
New Zealand had unilaterally canceled its Pakistan tour moments before the first game at Rawalpindi Stadium due to a security alert. However, no substantial evidence was shared by the New Zealand team as well as the government regarding the security threat.
