PAK v ENG: Former Pakistan’s Coach, Mickey Arthur expressed his disappointment over the cancellation of the tour by England and New Zealand.
On Monday, England cricket chiefs withdrew their men’s and women’s teams from next month’s series in Pakistan citing “increasing concerns about travelling to the region”.
ECB released an official statement in which they refused to send their men and women’s team to Pakistan due to the security threat.

On this, Mickey showed his disappointment for the Pakistani fans who were curiously looking forward to both the series.
Using his Twitter account he tweeted, “Gutted for Pakistan cricket fans!”
