‘England should call off tour’

Former England and Wales Cricket Board chairman Lord MacLaurin said Kevin Pietersen and his men should call off their tour of India because the situation there is far from safe.

Kevin Pietersen and his men should call off their tour of India because the situation there is far from safe, former England and Wales Cricket Board chairman Lord MacLaurin said on Tuesday.

MacLaurin said it would be sad if ECB, which is awaiting report from its security adviser Reg Dickason, eventually gives its go-ahead for the two-match Test series.

“I think the ECB will probably say yes and I think it will be very sad,” MacLaurin told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“I don’t think any security people can actually say it’s going to be safe. If it was left to me, I wouldn’t go,” he added.

Following the terror attacks, the England team returned home abandoning the last two games of their seven-match ODI series.
