I responded saying if he doesn’t have an issue doing it surely mandate to do it isn’t that big a deal but just read his statement and it sounds like the requirement must have been delivered very poorly/forcefully so in that case I guess more reasonablede Kock refused because he didn't like being ordered to participate and I don't blame him.
It isn't a show of support if people are being forced to do it.
Great news! Also a good timezone for us.We are finally going back to Pakistan for the first time in 24 years. I hope this goes ahead safely and hassle free, it can only be a good thing for international cricket, hopefully.
