Our neighboring country Pakistan is unable to digest the news that not one but two national cricket boards have refused to play with them. After everything was planned, New Zealand and England have canceled the series with Pakistan citing their reasons. Former Pakistan players have expressed their dissatisfaction over the same earlier.
Now it's the turn of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan to slam New Zealand and England Cricket boards. He was not happy with what the two cricketing nations have done for Pakistan. He had also blamed India for countries canceling their tours.
The PM said, India is controlling the world cricket and opined that money is a big factor now and it can influence the cricket boards in changing their decisions in the matters of any bilateral series.
Drawing a comparison between India and Pakistan, Imran Khan said that if India would have been in the place of Pakistan, no cricket boards would have done the same as India controls the world cricket. India funds the ICC and the major share of funds received by ICC comes from India.
As money flows from India in cricket, the country sees an advantage in everything. Anything they want will be done. Not only players, but the Cricket boards will also not go against India in any matter, Imran Khan added.
Pakistan was scheduled to play a bilateral series with New Zealand and mighty England. However, the series with two nations was canceled. New Zealand shocked Pakistan by calling quits hours ahead of the series. On the other hand, England had refused to send its team for the series.
