The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB)’s chairman Ehsan Mani thinks that India is unreliable as they pulled out of their commitment a couple of times.
Mani, in a video message, said that India didn’t fulfill their promises in the past regarding playing bilateral series against Pakistan due to which the PCB faced financial loss.
“We cannot rely on resuming cricket against India as they are unreliable. We can’t include them in our future plans for now because they have been failed to fulfill their promises a couple of times,” he said.

“We have some important upcoming tours against England, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. Our focus is to plan for these tours,” he added.
Upon being asked, Mani clarified that both PCB and the England Cricket Board (ECB) are in touch with each other to plan things accordingly for the upcoming tour. “We’ll do what’s the need of the hour & work with ECB. The tour will go ahead hopefully, but we have to be prepared for disruptions, our plans will need to be flexible & there’ll have to be goodwill on both sides,” he concluded.
