‘They wouldn’t have done that to India’: Michael Holding slams ECB over their decision to cancel Pakistan tour

West Indian former cricketer Michael Holding is the latest addition to the list of cricketers and cricket gurus to slam the English Cricket Board (ECB) over its decision to cancel their tour to Pakistan.

West Indian former cricketer Michael Holding is the latest addition to the list of cricketers and cricket gurus to slam the English Cricket Board (ECB) over its decision to cancel their tour to Pakistan.

The legendary former cricketer said that the ECB would never have done this to the Indian cricket board “because India is rich and powerful.” Michael Holding stated that the England cricket team was visiting Pakistan only for four days. He also recalled the time when the Pakistan cricket team visited England “before vaccines were available, for six or seven weeks.”

“And yet they [Pakistan cricket team] stayed, they played, they honoured what England wanted them to honour, to save England’s butt, to put it mildly. So did the West Indies. And you have an opportunity now to try to repay to a small degree what Pakistan did.”

The legendary cricketeter termed ECB’s statement regarding their tour cancellation as “rubbish.”

“I wouldn’t even pay attention to that statement, it doesn’t wash with me. I cannot even with those Mickey Mouse statements – no substance. Nobody wants to come forward and face up to anything because they know what they did was wrong, so they put out a statement and hide behind a statement,” he added.

Holding went on to add: “It just reminds me of the rubbish they did with Black Lives Matter. I won’t go back into that because I’ve said enough about that. But what that signal sends to me, is the same western arrogance. I will treat you how I feel like treating you, it doesn’t matter what you think, I’ll just do what I want. Four days in Pakistan? I’m absolutely sure they wouldn’t have done that to India, because India is rich and powerful.”

Michael Holding isn’t the only cricketer who is furious with the ECB over their decision. Earlier, Michael Atherton had also slammed the England cricket board. In an article for The Times, Atherton wrote, “England have failed to repay the debt they owe to Pakistan cricket.”  Veteran cricket journalist George Dobell had also something similar to say about the ECB.

  • India doesn’t have people like NAWAZ, SHAHBAZ, KHAQAN, MARYAM, ASIF ZARDARI, BILAWAL, MARYAM DADU FACE, and others who encourage anything against their country, who live to see Pakistan getting in humiliations and celebrate.
