Former English player and England’s Managing Director of Cricket Robert Key has said that Pakistan is the nicest country he has ever been to. During Australia’s tour of Pakistan, he was one of the commentators, and the 42-year-old stated that England’s perception of the sub-continent nation is incorrect.
Key was taken care of in Pakistan. Pakistan hosted Australia for the first time after 1998 as the two nations competed in three-Test series, as many ODIs, and a one-off T20I. The visitors won the Test series 1-0, but Pakistan won the ODIs 2-1. The tour ended with Australia winning the only T20I.
“I had limited knowledge of Pakistan when I came here. I think in England, we have the wrong perception of the Asian country. We have no idea how good it really is and it’s just fantastic. Pakistan is the best country I have been to by an absolute mile,” he said.
Key also felt that Pat Cummins’ bowling to Babar Azam was the tour’s highlight. “Cummins was bowling at the top of his game against Pakistan captain who was at the top of his game,” he added.
