England players body did not play a part in Pakistan tour abandonment


Team England Player Partnership chair Richard Bevan says neither they nor the individual players were involved in the decision

But Richard Bevan, the chair of TEPP, has insisted that neither the body as a whole or individual players were involved in making the decision. Instead, it appears as if the ECB board made that call.
