    The Forgotten Tour

    The Forgotten Tour

    In this feature we look at England's tour of Pakistan in 1968/69. The cricket played was not particularly memorable, but in every other respect the tour was a remarkable one.

    Another great article Martin, very well-researched and presented.

    Amazing read....very well done.

    It is incredible when contrasted with today's situation. Surely those times for East/West Pakistan were so risky even for the natives but i would say, there was still some morality for sportsmen or guests/tourists and a level of hospitality.

    After what happened to the SL team it has crossed all the lines and i surely don't blame anyone who doesn't want to tour Pak. There are bigger problems in Pak then ever before...
