Islamabad: Newly-elected Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Ramiz Raja was disappointed with England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) for pulling out of their commitment as they canceled their scheduled tour of Pakistan on Monday.

“Disappointed with England, pulling out of their commitment and failing a member of their Cricket fraternity when England. Survive we will inshallah. A wake-up call for Pak team to become the best team in the world for teams to line up to play them without making excuses,” tweeted Ramiz Raja.
