In a big news, two western leading cricket nations likely to visit Pakistan
ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Cricket Board chief executive Wasim Khan believes it is realistic to expect Australia and England to return to Pakistan under the current future tours programme following the planned resumption of Test cricket in the country with Sri Lanka’s visit next month.
Khan hopes that Sri Lanka’s “hugely symbolic” return for two Tests, along with staging the entire Pakistan Super League in the country this season, will continue to shift the perception about Pakistan.
Khan said that they all left with positive impressions of the security situation in Pakistan, and invitations to tour have been extended to South Africa, Ireland and Afghanistan, while Bangladesh are scheduled to tour in January under the Future Tour Programs.
“Do I think that’s realistic? Absolutely. Can it happen? I think it’s a case of ongoing dialogue working closely with players’ associations,” Khan said.
