Michael Vaughan suggests alternate venue for England series in place of ‘unsafe’ Pakistan

New Zealand received a lot of flak after calling off their tour of Pakistan minutes before the toss ahead of the first ODI at Rawalpindi owing to a security threat. This was New Zealand’s first tour to Pakistan since 2003-04.

With the Kiwis abandoning the white-ball tour, there has been a lot of talk about England who is scheduled to tour Pakistan next for a couple of T20Is in Rawalpindi are contemplating their decision of traveling there.

As far as the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) is concerned, the board is under pressure not to send its men’s and women’s teams to Pakistan and has asked its security experts for a report.

Ex-England skipper Michael Vaughan was not happy after New Zealand canceled the tour and had expressed his displeasure on Twitter, has now suggested that the white-ball series against England should be shifted to an alternate venue like UAE if Pakistan is deemed unsafe to travel.

It would seem sensible to me to try and move England’s Pakistan games to the UAE rather than cancel the tour if it’s deemed unsafe to travel .. !! Hopefully the games for the Men’s & Women teams can take place rather than a full cancellation,” Vaughan wrote on Twitter.
