The cancellation of England’s tour to Pakistan has been a hot topic for a long time now. Alex Hales, in recent interviews, shared his point of view regarding the cancellation of the trip in which he stated that such a decision from England made no sense.
In his recent interview with GEO TV, Hales elaborated further, saying that the decision was odd since Pakistan has been visiting England all the time of COVID. Hales also added that Pakistan has been aiding ECB generously.
Hales also believed that if the tour were a lengthy contract, it would have made more sense. Instead, they were on a brief contract with limited T20 matches aligned.
This trip was on the schedule for quite a long time. England canceling such an early scheduled trip at such short notice was alarming. The trip was called weeks before its actual date.
This raised a series of questions for both countries where it may be difficult for Pakistan to prove its security. While on the other hand, people were questioning the authenticity of England.
When looking at the career of Hales in the field of cricket, we can see that Hales has spent a major time of his career with Pakistan, which is more than any English cricketer.
