Heather Knight accepts Pakistan tour withdrawal but hopes England Women can check out in long run
ngland captain Heather Knight suggests the controversial decision to pull out of the prepared tour of Pakistan was “taken out of our hands” and insists it is critical for women’s cricket that they pay a visit to the state in the long run.
England’s ladies were because of to tour Pakistan for the initially time ever as aspect of a joint white-ball tour with the men’s staff, who were returning for the first time since 2005.
Even so, after New Zealand withdrew their men’s workforce from their tour of Pakistan very last 7 days due to a “credible threat”, the ECB announced on Monday that it too was pulling the plug.
That has drawn fierce criticism from Pakistan, who are confident they can give a protected experience for going to teams.
Knight insisted verdicts on the viability of a tour are not for players, or even captains, to take care of and defended the ECB’s ideal to make the phone.
Talking immediately after her side’s a few-wicket defeat to New Zealand at Leicester, she reported: “We found yesterday that the board experienced built the final decision for us not to go and it’s higher than our heads a minimal bit.
“I feel the the dialogue and the communication between the board and PCA (experienced cricketers’ association) is a robust a person, and it was a tough situation with what experienced gone on with New Zealand.
“I feel using it out of our palms is most likely the right issue to do and, and that was finished with a perspective to consider and glimpse soon after the gamers.
“It’s for the persons higher than us to make people selections and for us to to get on with them and take wherever they are.
“Hopefully, someday in the potential we’ll be able to go. I do consider it is significant for them, notably in women’s cricket with what is going on in the location.”
Knight had a lot more urgent issues to look at as well, obtaining found her side’s batting falter once more at Grace Road.
England were being bowled out although batting 1st for the 3rd activity in a row, this time for an under-energy 178, and would have been even worse off ended up it not for Katherine Brunt’s defiant 49 not out from amount nine.
New Zealand chased it down for the decline of seven wickets many thanks to Maddy Green’s confident 70 not out, with Brunt also professing four for 22 in a dropping cause.
“It was not a sport we should have to win, win, to be honest, we ended up just brief with the bat once again,” claimed Knight.
“We confirmed true combat, which is a great high quality to have in this staff. But as a top purchase we’re quite disappointed in that dressing room immediately after not putting jointly a overall.
“We know the expertise we have received in that batting line-up but we’ve got to uncover a way to turn it about rather quickly as a group and acquire some obligation for currently being the ones to make a rating.”
